CTBS’s Mission is to contribute back to the community and help those in need. Here are a few of the charities we hold dear.
The School Of St Jude Fighting Poverty Through Education.
The mission of The School of St Jude is to educate disadvantaged, bright students from the Arusha District to become moral and intellectual leaders in their country and for St Jude’s to thereby demonstrate educational leadership in Tanzania
The original land for St Jude’s was donated by the local Sisia Family, and the school maintains close links to the Arusha community. In 2013 St Jude’s employs over 450 local staff — headmasters, teachers, cooks, cleaners, builders, mechanics, office staff, drivers, guards, and gardeners. Local products are bought for meals, uniforms, buildings and furnishings to support the local community and economy as much as possible
2 Boarding facilities for over 1400 students.
Policy of 1 student per family. Therefore, 150 families each year benefits from a well educated child who can assist them in the future.
350 Computers in 9 labs over 3 campuses
St Judes’s also has a Welfare Team with five full-time medical officers, based at each of the three campuses and the two boarding campuses
Unfortunately, childhood malnutrition is common in Tanzania, but at St Jude’s our team of 43 Tanzanian cooks and kitchen staff work hard to produce nutritious meals, with a menu featuring seasonal produce which often comes from our school gardens and plantation

School For Life Foundation
School for Life is a not-for-profit organisation focused on making a transformational difference to the communities of emerging countries starting with Uganda through providing access to a quality education.
