Distribution of food baskets will take place in the following 22 countries:

Afghanistan • Bangladesh (Rohingyas) • Benin • Burkina Faso • Chad • India • Iraq • Kenya • Liberia • Lebanon • Madagascar • Mali • Nepal • Niger • Pakistan • Senegal •Somalia • Sri Lanka • Syria • Tanzania • Togo • Yemen

Your timely contributions will be critical for us to plan for logistics. Please donate or pledge now.

Blessings for your support and generosity!

Mwakezega Elementary School | Kigoma

CAI’s 24th school in Tanzania is under construction, with the opening ceremony scheduled for July 5, 2024. This school is only accessible by an off-road vehicle, about 50 km from the town center in Kigoma, Tanzania. Given its remote location, it will offer boarding facilities for students and teachers, classrooms, computer and science labs, administrative offices, toilets, and a deep water well already in operation, serving the local community with much-needed potable water.

Three hundred and fifty students will gain quality secular education. The aim is to start with elementary facilities, with further plans to build a secondary school and beyond.

The pictures below show the scale and remoteness of this project.

Lunguza School | Lushoto

CAI’s 25th school in Tanzania is undergoing:

• Reconstruction of 19 classrooms

• New construction of 3 classrooms

• Administrative office

• Two blocks of toilets

• New desks

Located 400 km from Tanga, in a remote location in Lushoto, 2,000 students will benefit from this school, taking their secular education experience to the next level.

The pictures below show the dilapidated state of the current school and the construction work in progress.
