GANAKO PRIMARY SCHOOL
While traveling in Tanzania in early 2019, our founder was introduced to the Ganako Primary School . A school for nearly 500 students, ages 5 to 13, taught by 17 teachers, these children walk or cycle up to 12 km each way daily to gain access to their ticket to a promising future: an education.
The school was in great need of a kitchen. The wooden shack which previously served as a makeshift kitchen was blown away by strong winds so the staff now prepare the limited food they can in the open.
Our goal was to donate the needed funds to build and equip a new kitchen providing the students with nutrition and nourishment as they pursue their goals of education and growth.
Update: The project was fully funded by Gigi Cares: Projects for Humanity! As of summer 2020, construction of the new kitchen building is nearly complete and Ganako Primary School is awaiting installation of the kitchen equipment - all fully funded by Gigi Cares and our supporters. But when the new school year opens, 500+ children will be nourished, fed and loved - thanks to the support of Gigi Cares, our friends and customers!
