The mission of The School of St Jude is to educate disadvantaged, bright students from the Arusha District to become moral and intellectual leaders in their country.
St Jude's provides a free, high-quality education to 1,800 students at a primary and secondary campus and has a program to also support its graduates through higher education. St Jude's graduates, supported by the school, are also teaching over 10,000 government school students each year.
St Jude’s provides a free, high-quality education to children who — due to poverty and social pressures — would otherwise be unlikely to complete their schooling. Drawn from families who live below the poverty line, the pupils of St Jude’s are shining examples of what students can achieve when they are given the opportunity to receive a quality education. Education lifts people out of poverty and creates stable and growing economies.
