What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The cost of school fees for both public and private schools can be prohibitive in Tanzania. Even supplies for public schools, which have been “free" since 2015, can be prohibitive because of necessary supplies and expense. However, because of the issues plaguing the public education system (absentee teachers, over-crowded classrooms, low-quality of available resources, and long, unsafe routes to school), many families desire to send their students to private schools. Robert and Cosmas (2016), found that school fees at private schools range from about 500,000-1,000,000 Tanzanian Shillings (approximately $220-$450 USD).Tanzania's annual GDP per capita in 2016 was $879.20 according to World Bank data, so private schooling places a substantial burden on families The GLK Student Fund aims to provide financial aid to students and families and help them find their best educational fit and get the education they need to support their com

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The GLK Student Fund supports the local community by identifying needy, academically-driven students, and providing them with the financial support to meet their respective educational goals. Historically, the GLK Student fund has supported over 100 students ranging from pre-school to university ages. By providing the additional financial security these students need, our students have been able to enroll in school, perform at the top of their class, graduate, and obtain employment. For some students, this means they were placed out of unsafe homes and into boarding schools with a safe place to work and study. The GLK Student Fund seeks to eliminate the financial barrier for students in Tanzania, by working with students and families to find the best educational solutions.

Our board of trustees in Tanzania, combined, has decades of experience in education, social work, and community service. We find students largely through community referrals. Once a student is referred, our trustees interview each student and review his or her academic records. We then interview the students and families to determine the appropriate school match and amount of academic need. We then work with the families to help them navigate all of the necessary registration requirements, find school supplies, and make payments directly to the schools

Approximately, half of our students are supported by sponsorships. This means that a donor has dedicated funds for the entirety of a student's program. The remainder of our students are supported through our pool of funds not allocated through specific sponsorships. In those cases where students are not supported through a sponsorship, the GLK Student Fund ensures that it has funds available to commit to a full, often multi-year course of study for any student it accepts
