"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

EDUCATIONAL ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM (EEP)

 

 

 

In partnership with 'Gearing Up 4 Hope', another state-side NGO, FFCC is creating an educational enhancement program in the Kalama District of Tanzania.  The goal of the program is to establish a standard of achievement by which both teachers and students are evaluated and then are rewarded with the use of state-of-the-art bicycles when they meet or exceed the criteria. The District Educational Office is currently working to write the criteria for each grade level primary through secondary school.

FFCC and Gearing Up 4 Hope have shipped over 150 new bicycles to be used in this program.  To date the bikes have been assembled and are ready to be distributed once the evaluation standard has been completed and submitted to FFCC and the schools.   

Raising the quality of education in Tanzania is a top priority issue for the country's leadership at the local and national level.  FFCC is delighted to be a part of this critical effort.
