Empower through Education

P1040708 Empower through EducationProject Wezesha is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2009 by Lucas Lameck and Rai Farrelly.  We founded Project Wezesha to address the needs of children in rural villages within the Kigoma Region of Western Tanzania.  Wezesha is the Kiswahili word for Empower.  The aim of Project Wezesha is to empower local communities through increased access to education for the children.  By engaging the community and relying on village leadership, Project Wezesha is able to target the locally identified needs of the community.  Our current programming includes a secondary school scholarship program for children most in need as well as a building project to provide Mgaraganza Village with its first ever secondary school – Amahoro Secondary.
