needitnow.com.au and parent company the AOT Group are proud to support The School of St Jude in Tanzania, Africa.
Opened by Australian Gemma Sisia in 2002 with just three students and one teacher, The School of St Jude is now a thriving institute for over 1,700 students and more than 500 local Tanzanian staff.
Students from disadvantaged families are accepted from around Arusha, a city of over 1.4 million people located at the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru.
The school operates two campuses and accepts 150 new Students in Year 1 each year. In 2015 the first Year 12 students will graduate at the school.
The school's philosophy of "Fighting Poverty through Education" is helping students break the cycle of poverty that has gripped their families for generations and provides a quality education in a country of over 45 million people with nominal GDP of US$703 per person.
It’s not every day that a building is named in your honour, especially one which is located on the other side of the world in Tanzania Africa.
But that is now the case for need it now which has recently been bestowed this honour by the School of St Jude in Africa.
The building (pictured) was named in honour of the support and generosity of needitnow.com.au which has donated $1 to the school from every customer booking since April 2011.
