We believe high quality and accessible education is not only critical to the development of Tanzania, but is also a human right.
In Tanzania, only 30% of children enroll in secondary school, and of that group, only 4% enroll in tertiary education.
Committed to empowering Tanzania’s youth, the Mo Scholars program provides scholarships to outstanding high school Form 6 graduates, who want to attend college or university but are unable to afford the cost.
Our scholarships, awarded annually to a select cohort of high school graduates, cover tuition and additional fees (housing, meals etc.) for four years of undergraduate college. We currently support over 100 students.
With the aim of shaping Tanzania’s next generation of leaders, our program, builds a supportive community of passionate students and provides them with the capacity to unlock their greatest potential
