THE BIG GIVE CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE
DOUBLE YOUR DONATION, FOR ONE WEEK ONLY
Camara has been selected to take part in this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. We are seeking to raise £42,900 to install eLearning centres in five schools in Tanzania and bring digital education to students who may never have had access to computers before.
Donations made online between 28th November and 5th December 2023 will be doubled. Please donate when our Big Give page goes live at 12pm on November 28th.
£50, doubled to £100, will pay for a refurbished computer to install in a school. If you can give £350, doubled to £700, you could pay for an entire teacher-training package for a school, directly impacting over 600 children and thousands more over the teachers’ careers. £4,250, which becomes £8,500 for Camara, will provide an entire eLearning centre together with training for its teachers and support and maintenance for four years. Or just £7, doubled to £14, will impact a Tanzanian student, giving them a better chance of making the most of their life opportunities.
Where Will the Money Go?
Many students in Tanzania have little or no access to computers or digital education at school. Installing eLearning centres in their schools provides access to technology for these students, providing them with essential skills for the 21st-century workforce. Our centres come with servers stacked full of educational content and textbooks that can be accessed offline. We also offer training to teachers – who may themselves have limited experience of using technology – and four years of maintenance, support and refresher training.
Your support will enable us to complete five more of these centres in 2024. Each school will get 25 desktop computers, a server and training for their teachers, as well as maintenance and support for 4 years.

If you can give £50, doubled to £100, that will pay for a refurbished computer to install in the eLearning centre. £350, doubled to £700, would provide the entire teacher-training package to a school, directly impacting over 700 children plus thousands more over the teachers’ careers.
