Tanzania outreach at Fremont Christian School

Submitted By Nick Liston

This summer, Fremont Christian School will be holding its 4th Annual Tanzania Outreach Program. Fremont Christian will be collecting both books and soccer equipment to be shipped to Tanzania in mid July. Since beginning the program four year ago, Fremont Christian has sent over 500 pair of used soccer cleats and thousands of books to this impoverished African nation.

Mbaki R Mutahaba, a former soccer coach for the Newark Soccer Club and the director of the Pangolin Soccer Project in Tanzania, has asked for help in equipping the athletes in his program. "I have completely run out of stock of everything that I had collected from there [the Bay Area] and 75% of kids that I now help do not have cleats and unfortunately buying even used shoes here is just too expensive. I cannot support them. I need help. These are for kids from age 8 - 15."

In addition, Fremont Christian will be collecting used books to help schools in Tanzania build libraries. "The entire school community started reading and using these resourceful books the minute they reached our school," said Alvera Kashushura of Josiah Girls' High School in Bukoba, Tanzania. "We are looking forward to receiving more help from you."

Donations of both books and soccer equipment are being accepted at Fremont Christian School through July 15th. For more information on this program, please contact Nick Liston at nliston@fremontchristian.com
