The School of St Jude

In 2002 a young lady, Gemma Rice (now Gemma Sisia), from a sheep farm in Australia, opened a small school in Northern Tanzania with the help of her family, friends and local Rotary Club. What started with only a handful of children and one teacher is now in 2009 a thriving school of almost 1300 children and 350 staff. In January 2008 another free primary school with an initial enrollment of over 550 children opened. These schools really have the potential to influence the quality of Tanzania's future leaders.

In 2009 Claire visited Tanzania with an official Parliamentary Delegation. Whilst Claire was in Tanzania she travelled to the School of St Jude and met with teachers and students.
