Equal opportunities for everyone.

Qualified education for orphans

With scholarships from SCHULBANK, needy orphans gain access to qualified education and thus a perspective of financial security, self-determination and contentment in their country.

Background and principles of our work

Educational misery in Tanzania.

Qualified education is the exception rather than the rule in Tanzania’s state schools. Parents who have the opportunity send their child to a private school.

AIDS – 1.3 million orphans.

Tanzania has one of the highest rates of AIDS in the world. As a result, the number of orphans in Tanzania is very high. Children born with minimal educational opportunities.

Support development with scholarships from SCHUL BANK

Why do we support through a scholarship program? Because we don’t want to get involved in education and don’t want to invest in infrastructure projects. Because we believe in the potential of the young generation of Tanzania and want to support their efforts directly and fight for equal opportunities.

For our educational sponsors, this is the most sustainable form of support.

How a sponsorship helps

For SCHULBANK, sponsorships are an important, but not the only, financing component of our scholarship program. Shoulder to shoulder with parents, schools, orphanages and many others, the school costs are borne together. Around half of the costs are already covered by Tanzanian participation. We call this solidarity help.

For our sponsors, this is a type of support that allows them to see the impact of their support directly and yet at a reasonable distance. Our sponsorships are deliberately different from typical child sponsorships.

Where we work

The center of concentration for aid organizations in Tanzania is in the north of the country. Reason enough for us to move to the southern high mountains of Tanzania, where aid arrives less frequently and poverty and AIDS are at their highest.

Tanzania fears severe drought

Currently, the living situation here in Tanzania is becoming more and more frightening. The cost of living is high and it seems that Tanzanians have given up. In recent years, prices for foodstuffs such as rice and ugali flour have doubled.

Tailwind – When our sponsors talk…

Not only the work with our pupils and students makes our hearts beat faster. If sponsors, after careful examination, consider our work worth supporting, then we feel momentum.

I immediately liked SCHULBANK when I read about it in the Westfälische Nachrichten. A great commitment and the right concept in my opinion. Today I am the sponsor of little Meschack and am happy to be able to help so directly. Who knows, maybe I’ll even visit my godchild. Keep it up SCHULBANK!

Schulbank is accessible to us, not an anonymous organization with a hotline. So we just met up with the Kösters one evening and had them explain to us exactly what school desks are doing in Tanzania. After that, no questions were left unanswered and we know our donations are in good hands.

Donations in education, the transparency of the school bench, little bureaucracy – all this convinced me to take part. Here I can easily see where my donation will be used and which child will benefit from it. I’m happy to support that.
