Every child is entitled to receive free education . This school will serve a population of 23437 which has no public school.
Friends of Faye Cran well-know of her remarkable and devoted efforts which every day, support those most in need in ways most others only ponder. Faye is known by those who have been recipients of her life's work as Mama Kuku and Mama Faye. Rotary and other groups have recognised Faye in various awards, but there is nothing tangible in Tanzania that honours her work.
Recently, New Zealand Rotarians visiting Faye expressed a desire to undertake a major project that would epitomise Faye's Service above Self. After much cajoling, the Faye Cran Chem Chem Primary School and the Mama Kuku Preschool will be built in a community in desperate need of a primary school and a preschool.
Many Rotarians have visited Tanzania during the past 15 years as donors and volunteers have experienced Faye's generosity, hospitality and energy as she chaperoned them to the dozens of projects undertaken before and during that time.
Donations of US$50,000 or more will have part of the complex named in recognition, and gifts of US$5,000 or more will be included on a recognition board.

Best wishes and thanks for giving the children a chance in life, which they would not have had without you.
