How The School of St Jude is breaking the cycle of poverty in Tanzania

Here at Pure Public Relations, we are always looking for ways to give back. Sometimes that means working with charities and not-for-profit organisations to boost their message with powerful PR campaigns. Other times, it simply means getting our team to rally around a great cause that we truly care about.

This is what brought us to becoming a student sponsor for The School of St Jude. We’ve loved supporting this incredible organisation over the past year and wanted to share the amazing work they do for children and families in Tanzania.

About The School of St Jude in Tanzania

The School of St Jude is a beacon of hope in Tanzania, committed to breaking the cycle of poverty through quality education. Founded by Australian philanthropist Gemma Sisia, the school provides free, high-quality education to over 1,800 of the region’s most disadvantaged students. Their mission is to empower these young minds with knowledge and skills, enabling them to escape poverty and contribute positively to society. 

The school’s mission extends beyond academics, fostering character development and leadership skills to empower students for a brighter future. St Jude’s holistic approach to education empowers students to achieve success for themselves and for their wider community by using their education and experience to become the future leaders and changemakers their country needs.

St Jude’s also offers secondary education, and 97% of students who graduate go on to access higher education – many with the help of Beyond St Jude’s. With help from their supporters, St Jude’s students are not only provided with full scholarships for their primary or secondary education, but they are also taught by highly qualified teachers, and given uniforms, food, water, transport, boarding, health and welfare support and learning resources. In doing so, St Jude’s employs around 300 Tanzanian staff.

Supporting St Jude’s

Since 2022, Pure has proudly supported a young girl in her journey to receive an education at St Jude’s. Throughout this time, the whole team has gotten involved by sending messages and letters of encouragement to our sponsor student, not to mention a drawing or two from some of the team’s children.

Companies play a pivotal role in supporting the School of St Jude’s mission. Through strategic partnerships and corporate sponsorships, businesses can contribute to the school’s operational costs, ensuring that quality education remains accessible to those who need it most. Financial support also helps to maintain the school’s infrastructure, providing essential resources, and expanding educational opportunities for more students.

In addition to being a great way to give back to less fortunate communities, the team at Pure can attest to how great this sponsorship has been for team bonding. We recommend it to any business wanting to do good and foster greater connection within their team in the process.
