Empowering Educators and Change-Makers in Tanzania.

BOULDER, CO

Mission

The Kesho Fund is an American NGO that uses a simple website and a streamlined management structure to bring grassroots development projects in Tanzania to a global stage. Our goal is to connect the right donors to the right community leaders for long-lasting relationships and sustainable impact. We do most of our work through carefully-targeted small grants to education projects, and we emphasize the power of individual donors by collecting most of our support in the form of recurring monthly subscriptions. Donors have the option of choosing which specific programs to support, as well as their own degree of ongoing contact with the projects’ leaders and beneficiaries. See our website for details + media on each project we're supporting on now.
