Parlé, Gem Legacy Team Up for Giving Tuesday Fundraising Campaign
Parlé will match donations up to $15,000 in an effort to build houses for teachers at a Tanzanian primary school.
Kicking off Tuesday, Nov. 30, the campaign will raise money to build much-needed housing for teachers at the Kitarini Primary School in Tanzania.
Located in northern Tanzania near the Longido ruby mines, Kitarini now has more than 800 children in attendance and offers them not only classes but also meals.
With the increase of students has also come a greater demand for teachers. In the past few years, however, the school has experienced a high turnover of its teaching staff, often due to inadequate housing for them, and created gaps in teaching while the students are without teachers.
Understanding how vital consistency is for education, Gem Legacy and Parlé want to build four homes for teachers and their families on the school’s property, a project estimated to cost $17,000.
“With the help of our partners in the industry, we believe we can achieve this goal and add much-needed stability to the educational system at Kitarini,” said Brecken Farnsworth, vice president of Parlé.
“Any additional funds raised outside of the housing project will go towards the Kitarini School Lunch Initiative. It is our greatest hope that we will rise together and support the future of these communities.”
Parlé will match donations up to $15,000 in the hopes of raising at least $30,000 for Gem Legacy.
Those interested can donate from Nov. 30 through Dec. 14 via the Parlé website.
