Gemma Sisia started the School of St. Jude in Tanzania with the help of Rotary in 2002--to educate disadvantaged, bright students from the Arusha District to become moral and intellectual leaders in their country.   Rotarians around the world (including our Club) have provided support over the years through sponsorships, purchase of buses, buildings, and equipment.  The school started with 1 teacher and 3 students and today it has over 1800 students and hundreds of graduates.  Our club currently sponsors three students:  John, Furahini and Abdulkadir. There are several ways you can help support students:
1)  Individually sponsor a student.  Full sponsorship for a student for a year is $2,640 or you can do a 1/2 sponsorship for $1,320.  Visit the website:
2)  Make a tax deductible donation to the school and/or students by sending your check to:  AF School of St Jude, PO Box 3994, Rapid City, SD, 57709
3) Through our Rotary Club by donating monthly Highmark Federal Credit Union- Pat Sutliff has forms and information.
