Olchoki Primary School ~ Let’s Feed
In northern Tanzania, Olchoki Primary School serves over 1,400 students from the urban center of Arusha. Classes run from 7am – 3pm each day. Before OBA started the lunch program, there was no food or water on campus. Many of the students do not get a regular meal at home either.
At 14 cents per day, per child a school lunch program will cost $32,000 per year. Will you help us feed these kids?
COVID-19 Response ~ Keep Our Students Safe
Our schools need to supplies to combat COVID-19. We are trying to collect as much support as we can for our brothers ans sisters in Tanzania during this time. Supplies are very expensive in Tanzania, and all funds sent will be used for the necessary tools to keep our the students and staff safe.
Madagascar Lunch Program
For fifty years Operation Bootstrap Africa has been supporting teacher’s salaries at five schools in Madagascar. In October, we learned that nine of our students had died of malnutrition. Due to the yearlong drought, compounded by a national COVID-19 lock down, trucks have not been able to move food to markets in the south. The suffering has pushed parents to feeding their families cactus. OBA responded by starting a lunch program for all five of the schools we support in Madagascar. We can’t feed the entire country but we can help the students and teachers we know. Please consider our students in the Malagasy schools. Less than a dollar a week can provide a life sustaining lunch for a student. $600.00 can feed an entire school for a month.

Supporting Primary Students’ Education
Operation Bootstrap Africa supports primary students’ education by building and providing resources for numerous primary schools in Tanzania, Madagascar, and Kenya.
Best School Academy is a community school in Kenya that is located in a small impoverished area. The children in this village have very limited resources for education, but have the drive to learn. Operation Bootstrap Africa has met with the headmaster and set up a sponsorship program for their first year primary school students. These children will now have access to learning, and be able to make a change in their village. Many of the children wish to have careers in the future that will help their village progress and grow. For a dollar a day, help them achieve their goals and aspirations. Sponsor a young primary student today, and help them become the change they want to see in their country.
