Career opportunities with The School of St Jude - Arusha, Tanzania
Educating disadvantaged students to become moral and intellectual leaders
Poverty in Tanzania is endemic. Ranked 204 out of 230 nations in the world for GDP per capita, as a nation Tanzania is unable to provide its children with a quality education. The government school system is overstretched, under-resourced, and produces poor educational outcomes for Tanzanian society.
St Jude’s provides a free, high-quality education to children who — due to poverty and social pressures — would otherwise be unlikely to complete their schooling. Drawn from families who often live on less than $1.25 per day, the pupils of St Jude’s are shining examples of what students can achieve when they are given the opportunity to receive a quality education.
St Jude’s has over 1,800 students and a staff compliment of 250 employees spread across three school campuses at Arusha, near Mount Kilimanjaro. The business office is located at their Moshono Primary Campus on the outskirts of Arusha
