About Me

I am the founder and director of The Toa Nafasi Project, a charitable organization that was conceived in 2009 and incorporated in 2012 in response tothe evident homogeneous approach to education in the East African country of Tanzania.  Toa nafasi means “provide a chance” in Kiswahili, the local language of Tanzania, and addresses the fact that without a systemic reform in the education sector that acknowledges each student’s individuality, many Tanzanian schoolchildren will not achieve their full potential.  The Toa Nafasi Project believes this state of affairs is reparable.  We augment the current system and its national curriculum by working with local government authorities to take up the following issues in public primary schools: (a) introducing new and innovative teaching methodologies; (b) developing better teacher training; (c) enriching Early Childhood Development and Early Childhood Education; (d) improving English language instruction; (e) inculcating a “culture of reading”; (f) recognizing non-scholastic aptitudes; (g) supporting children with learning difficulties; and (h) making medical and psycho-social services available to students in need.  Alongside teachers, parents, and the community at large, The Toa Nafasi Project elicits creativity and distinction in academic performance and extracurricular activities, and provides each student with the chance to excel.
