The Toa Nafasi Project is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was conceived in 2007 and incorporated in 2012 in response to the uniform approach to education in the East African country of Tanzania.
Toa nafasi means “provide a chance” in Swahili, and addresses the fact that without some kind of reform in the education sector that acknowledges each student’s individuality, many Tanzanian students will not achieve their full potential. The ultimate objective of The Toa Nafasi Project is to re-envision the future of all Tanzanian schoolchildren: to enable them to succeed in school, attain gainful employment across various fields, become productive members of their community, and help advance their country as a whole.
The Toa Nafasi Project was founded by Sarah Rosenbloom, a longtime volunteer teacher and development worker in Kilimanjaro, and works in collaboration with partners, both international and Tanzanian, to improve the current educational system and national curricula, thereby providing every child with a chance to succeed.
