Project MEMA (Making Education in Moshi Accessible), a Boston-based 501(c)(3) registered public charity, seeks to enrich the lives of children by promoting education and healthy living in Moshi, Tanzania, East Africa.
"Mema" in Kiswahili means "good" and that is just what this non-profit organization hopes to do.
Project MEMA believes that education can change the face of Tanzania and lift children and their families out of poverty. There are many conditions affecting the ability of children to attend school. Poor nutrition, inadequate and poorly supplied schools, and lack of funding for primary and secondary education are a few of the obstacles faced by children and families. Project MEMA targets these issues by providing sponsorships to primary and secondary students, and school lunches, classroom supplies, uniforms, and school enhancement projects to nursery schools in Moshi, Tanzania.
