Our Board of Directors are all committed to helping these students, the school and the community.
Joanne began Aya Education Fund after visiting Tanzania and meeting Charles Shayo at Kilimanjaro. Upon returning to live in Bomg Ng'ombe, she realized that her past work in non profit management could benefit the students at Kingereka School. Now with a growing charity, Joanne spends her time communicating with Charles and the teachers to ensure that we are able to help students that need something, pay for fees and look at the long term needs of the school.
I've been an annual supporter of Aya Education Fund for the past three years. I believe every child should have the opportunity for education. Access to a school should be readily available and Aya Education Fund has been helping to make that happen. I can make a difference for children's education with this group and I look forward to being a part of it's growth.
Director -Tanzanian Contact
Charles Shayo is a trek guide for Kilimanjaro and our local Tanzanian Board Member. Charles has a passion for his community, he helps to organize and purchase school supplies, any exam fees, as well as sends photos of the students and of the school.
Charles is a pilar in his community. Many neighbours come to visit, seek advice, and sit and speak with him. He would love for volunteers to come and visit and see how amazing his country is. He welcomes those who would like to do a homestay and spend time in his village.
