Precious Project Inc.
The Precious Project, a 501(c)(3) is incorporated in the United
States and operates in partnership with a Tanzanian registered NGO in the Usa
River/ Arusha region. Our mission is to alleviate poverty through education,
offering opportinity to vulnerable children, orphans and families in Nshupu, a
small village of subsistence farmers. Founded in 2010 as a home for nine AIDS
orphans, the project has grown considerably. A new home was built to house fifteen
children, a feeding program and preschool was started for seventy five
children, a model sustainable organic working farm was established as well as a
micro lending support group for local widows and single mothers. Construction
of a new primary school is nearing completion and will offer education free of
charge to 232 of the neediest children in the area. The project is led on the
ground by Tanzanian educators and is supported by American co-founders who
spend five months a year on-site in Tanzania. For more information please see
