Mattress Drive

Additional Information

We are currently working on a project to help underprivileged girls who are in boarding schools (“hostels”) and in need of mattresses. I was privileged to visit these young girls in their school hostel in Tanzania, Pwani Region, Kibiti District at Mahege Secondary School. Unfortunately, the living conditions I saw were very poor. Many of the girls have no mattresses to sleep on and they sleep on pieces of foam or cardboard.  These girls get free tuition fees but they need to pay for the boarding cost (that includes food and room) and uniforms, books and mattresses.

The total number of girls who are in need is 49 and each mattress costs $30.00. We are kindly asking for your support. 

A good night’s rest can change a young girl’s life.

“After a peaceful night she is ready to own the world”

This year we accomplished our Mattress Drive project. 

Through your donations, we were able to provide 52 mattresses to underprivileged young girls at the Mahege Secondary Hostel. It was a total success, as we exceeded our goal of 49 mattresses. 

Many of the girls had been sleeping on cardboard or foam pieces, and thanks to your generosity, they now get a good night’s sleep.  

 There are many girls that don't have this luxury, therefor we still need your help!
