Pangani School

Father Novatus approached me last year with a desperate plea for help. The people of Pangani, Tanzania begged Father and the Capuchin friars to build and run a school for their children. The youngsters face a bleak, impoverished future without a school in this forgotten area. They needed our help.

With great enthusiasm and support from the Seraphic Mass Association, Father Novatus gathered an energetic and hardworking crew to complete the first building of the new school.

Classes began in January with 70 students! Can you imagine the joy and excitement of the parents of these children?

Because schools are scarce in the rural areas of Tanzania, parents send children long distances to attend school. Father Novatus must house and feed the students. And more classrooms, a dormitory and cafeteria, recreation areas, and a library are needed.

Can you help us with this very special project?

Will you partner with me and the Tanzanian friars? Please join this great adventure to give a brighter future for the children of Pangani.
