The Tanzanian Partnership Program School Feeding Initiative

Despite Tanzania’s strong commitment to the Millennium Development goal of eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, childhood malnutrition in Tanzania has increased. This trend is especially pronounced in rural areas where nearly half of children are stunted. Hungry children often do not learn, skip school, and eventually dropout.

Over the summer of 2015, six Michigan State University (MSU) students selected as Kolschowsky Scholars traveled to Tanzania to learn participatory and integrated approaches to development as part of the Sustainable Community Development in Tanzania study abroad program. The scholars were profoundly impacted by their experience living and working in the Maasai village of Naitolia, which was suffering from a severe dry season. While the village is capable of feeding itself during the wet season, the recent dry period had drastically limited harvest yields and the villagers’ ability to maintain the school feeding program. After returning to MSU, the scholars worked with MSU Crowdpower to create a fundraising initiative to help ensure the children of Naitolia receive proper school lunches. To help support the Naitolia Feeding Program Initiative, please donate on MSU's secure online giving giving system.

Gifts may also be made by mail, with either a check or a credit card number, or by phone. Please make checks payable to “Michigan State University” and include the Tanzanian Partnership Program—Naitolia Feeding Program Initiative (AP001055 - TPP School Feeding Program) on the memo line.
