"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
We are an organisation of change.
Creative Education Foundation Zanzibar (CEFZ) is a charitable NGO which was established in 2011 in Zanzibar, Tanzania in response to the lack of access to quality education for Zanzibar's orphaned and underprivileged children.
We believe that if we can provide a quality education to just one child from a family in need, that child can help support their extended family and community in the future.
As a grassroots organisation, CEFZ have low overheads and leverage volunteers (even our full-time Executive Director is volunteer). The result is minimal costs going to administration of the project, and your donation and sponsorships going to where they are needed most - keeping kids healthy and in school receiving the exceptional education they need to transcend barriers.
A Unique Approach
The Zanzibar Steiner School Education Program is designed to serve as a foundation for lifelong learning, providing students with a pathway out of poverty and preparing them for the world beyond Zanzibar Steiner School.
- Local Curriculum, Made More Experiential
- Educating Children whilst Building Teaching Capacites
- Reaching for Sustainability
Students are orphans or from disadvantaged families
CEFZ Zanzibar Steiner School receive no government funding and fund raise for all our services. Our students do not, and can not pay fees. CEFZ do not usually qualify for international aid because we operate on a small scale, with an intense teacher mentoring program and reduced class sizes.
