“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.”
Education can lift a child out of poverty. Expand their universe of possibilities. It can help them find and develop the great potential that lies within and tap it to drive change in their community and the world at large.
Waka Waka. Lighting the path forward.
Derived from the Swahili word for “shine” or “blaze,” The Waka Waka Project’s goal is to ignite young minds, so that they may burn more brightly and lead the way forward for their communities and nation.
We're different from other children’s education charities. We focus exclusively on 15 promising students in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania, providing them with the educational opportunities and support they need to become beacons of hope in their community.
You hold the keys to their future.
Our kids have talent and dreams. But they need financial help to support them. With your help, these incredible kids will get the chance to shine their brightest.
