St John’s Foundation Trust
The trust (consisting mainly of senior local and expatriate staff) has been set up to oversee special projects that are related to development of the infrastructure and facilities to improve student welfare and safety. Details of the Trustees and how to make donations are given below.
There are many projects that need support. Some require significant funds, while a great deal can be done with a relatively small amount of financial support.
First projects are for:
• A 2.4 km ring fence around the main Mazengo campus (Why do we need a fence – Click here)
• Student Residences (Why do we need student residences – Click here)
• General infrastructure improvements (Why do we need this – Click here)
• A one-off donation to clear loans taken out to establish and restore the teaching facilities (Why do we need this – Click here)
A pamphlet has been prepared which can be downloaded, printed and distributed by Friends of St John’s, churches and other organisations.
There are three versions
Donations to the trust can be sent directly to St John’s University of Tanzania Foundation Trust (stating clearly that the money is for the Trust, and for which project), or via the Friends of St John’s organisations in England and New Zealand (where tax concessions are possible for certain projects).
