We donate $1 from each tee to high school scholarships for girls in Tanzania!
Why is it needed?
Attending school in Tanzania is different than Western schools. Primary school is required (but not strictly enforced) for grades 1 - 7. After Grade 7, all students are required to pass a test to move on to secondary school. Students that do not pass the test enter the work force. Students that pass the test are permitted to move on to secondary school, which lasts for four years and is the equivalent of high school in the U.S. Tuition is free for secondary school, however, there are many other indirect expenses that families must cover in order for the student to attend secondary school.
What does the scholarship provide?
What is the long-term impact of this project?
Increased Student Motivation
Since ACAI launched this program in 2015, they have motivated more students in Chumbi village to study hard to pass the secondary school entrance test! Students now realize that their efforts will not be wasted and they are working hard to qualify. In fact, the number of students that qualify for secondary school has been doubling each year! Every student who passes the test is currently provided with books and uniforms by ACAI. But we want to help provide a full scholarship for each of the girls who have earned this opportunity!
Building Generational Blessings
Studies have shown the direct correlation between education and development. Rural sub-Saharan Africa is one of the least developed places on earth. But there is hope! Because of initiatives like ACAI secondary school scholarships, more students with higher educations will have increased opportunities to help transform their villages by giving back to their region, and some will eventually be provided the opportunity to attend university.

Why are we so passionate about making an impact with this project? We have a long background in education. We are both teachers, our mom is a teacher, our aunts and our grandmas are teachers. We know firsthand the importance of education! And this particular scholarship hits close to home, because it honors the memory of a family member, Patrick Muthomi Mutai.
