Partnership with MICHE Association started in 2004 with the aim of eradicating poverty in rural areas especially low income population areas through education support. Our first partnership project was initiated in 2005 in Ifakara Morogoro by supporting total of six schools in key areas which are provision of food to schools to increase students class attendance and donation of desks, renovation of classrooms, building of toilets and special support to individual students. This support was accompanied by capital support of people to this area through microfinance services provision in order to make business sustainable.
In 2006 Miche extends areas of operation by supporting education sector in Tumbatu -Zanzibar and Somanga-Kilwa. The support involved renovation of school’s buildings, provision of food to students and establishment of water sources.
