"Elimu ni Ufunguo wa Maisha"
"Education is the Key to Life"



Chamwino Connect is a 501c3 fundraising organization that supports lifelong education in central Tanzania.


We are driven by a famous saying in Swahili: “Elimu ni unfunguo wa maisha—Education is the key to life.” We believe that education can end the cycle of poverty and empower the most vulnerable. Education brings opportunity and changes lives.


Through various incentives, from providing scholarships for students to secondary school and college to support to running of an annual festival of traditional ngoma (music and dance), we are enhancing the lives of children and adults in the village of Chamwino Ikulu.  We are responding to the expressed interests and needs of Chamwino villagers for access to a substantial education, and for the continuation of a vibrant experience in traditional artistic and cultural practices. Through opening an early learning center, providing scholarships for higher education, and increasing the educational resources in public schools, we are enhancing the value of education provided in Chamwino. Our aim is to lay the foundation of early childhood education for children, prolong the education of youth, and continue education where it stopped short for adults.


All donations and gifts to Chamwino Connect are tax deductible and donors will receive a receipt upon donation. We are grateful for your support!
