The School of St Jude is an incredible school in Tanzania, established by Australian – Gemma Sisia – to “fight Poverty through Education”. Each year they select the brightest students from the poorest of the poor in Tanzania, and “support” them through am amazing education programme – from primary thruugh to tertiary qualifications.
