Shade School officially opened in January of 2020. Located in Shinyanga, Tanzania, we serve children in our community and vulnerable children in the region. Our goal is to provide access to quality education for all children, including the most vulnerable of all, those with albinism.
In Tanzania, children with albinism often grow up in government centers for their protection. They are targets of attack and are hunted due to beliefs that their body parts, when sacrificed in witchcraft rituals, will bring luck, power, and wealth.
Shade School is a big part of our vision. We focus on education, advocacy, and faith to bring transformation and are developing the Shade Campus, which will be a place of holistic love and care. Our mission is to show the tangible love of Jesus to people with albinism in Tanzania.
