Village Education Project Kilimanjaro believes that a good primary education gives a child the foundation for all future learning and shapes his or her life. We are committed to long-term projects in our work to improve the quality of primary education in government schools and to provide skills training to young people in rural Tanzania. Your donation(s) will assist VEPK to continue its work providing children and young people in rural Tanzania with the education they need to become self-supporting and responsible citizens.
VEPK is almost 20 years old now and we have accumulated a great network of professionals who assist us to go from strength to strength in improving the quality of education in the Kilimanjaro Region. Our Whole School Development Programme is a major part of our work and exists to address all aspects of primary education by working with Head Teachers, Teachers, School Committees, parents, Education Authorities including District Education Officers, School Inspectors, and Teacher Training Colleges.
The expected outcome of VEPK’s work, and one that is beginning to emerge, is that a school that has good teaching in the early years will have a solid foundation of good discipline and children with enquiring minds who are keen to learn. A school that has confident, capable leaders will run efficiently with a healthy team spirit and an ethos of striving for excellence. With this assistance the primary school pupils will be given an education that can help them forever in their future lives.
‘Donate Now— Over 50% of local Tanzanian children have no chance of education after finishing primary school at age 14 but your support will help future generations to become confident and responsible citizens.
Education is life ‘Elimu ni uhai’.’

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
