TFT was able to raise $5200 for food for our 75 students and their families. Each family received a large bag of rice or maize, a bag of beans, a jar of cooking oil, and some sugar. During this Coronavirus pandemic, schools were closed and some businesses were shut down. As a result, people are not able to sell their products in the market places. Food shortage is as great a threat to the people in Tanzania as is the virus. It is predicted that more people will die from starvation than from COVID-19. There are no food pantries, government subsidies or other safety nets to assist people with no income. The government is not being transparent about the number of COVID-19 cases; consequently, people are frightened from not knowing the extent and locations of cases. TFT’s distribution of food items brought these families much assurance that we care for them and are not forgetting them even at a time when people in the US are suffering.
Check out the pictures of the students receiving food convey their sincere joy and thankfulness.

HELP US BUILD SAVE LIFE ENGLISH MEDIUM SCHOOL
We're excited to announce the construction of the first three classrooms of Save Life English Medium School! After purchasing eight acres in 2016 in the Kandete area of Southern Tanzania, we've been eager to move forward. The first phase consisted of a well and the administration building. This year construction of the first three classrooms has almost been completed, but we still need your help to complete the roofing and detail work. Our goal is to eventually have nine classrooms completed during the next three years.
SAVE LIFE PRESCHOOLERS
Help us reach our next goal of building classrooms for grade 1-3, two rooms per grade.
