BE A RAINMAKER
Although, we are really amazed about the positive impact our Flood Garden has had on our school and the community, we have a long way to go before we can sell enough vegetables to have a surplus.
We have decided to ask for your help to get us through the next year or so while our farm is maturing. We are starting a tuition drive so that our children can continue to attend our school for free. Many of our little ones are orphans and/or live with grand parents, and without our preschool they would be poorly supervised or even on the streets while their caretakers work to make ends meet. Life on the streets of Arusha is very dangerous for unsupervised preschoolers.
Here is how you can help:
Sponsor a preschooler attending MDFT. Tuition is $240 ($20 a month)
- This donation will cover school fees, 2 nutritious meals a day and school supplies for one child for a whole year
- An additional $100 per year will provide doctor visits and medicines
- You will receive,
- the child’s progress report,
- pictures and videos,
- our school newsletter
- printable art made by the student(s)
- season’s greetings from your student(s)
Drinking coffee at a coffee shop a couple of days a week adds up to about $20 per month. It is an small amount to the average coffee drinker but it is an amount that will give a little preschooler a great head start!!
We have 100 students so if possible, feel free to sponsor more than just one

Friends of the Flood Garden Project contribute a monthly amount to develop and spread Flood Gardens and the Flood Garden learning model into other Arusha schools.
We currently need monthly support to:
- Create and build culturally appropriate learning materials and tools for the preschool
- Provide field trips for the students
- Provide steady Professional Development for the Flood Garden teachers and staff
- Promote the Flood Garden Project
- Provide community outreach events to spread the Flood through out our Arusha community
- Expand the Making a Difference Foundation Tanzania school from an amazing preschool to a wonder and effect primary and secondary program
- Expand the Flood Garden Project from a school garden into a viable and profitable farm to achieve our goal of making the Making a Difference Foundation Tanzania school(s) totally self-sufficient
You can also help us shorten our WISH LIST. Here are some items that we could really use:
- Bookshelves — we currently need about 8-10 small bookshelves to place learning materials at a level where the children can easily reach them. Currently, our classrooms have NO shelves.
- Each shelf costs about $30 (50,000Tsh)
- Total cost of 10 shelves $300
Note: Purchase a shelf and we will display your name or the name of your business/organization in a prominent place on that shelf
All donations to New World Flood are tax deductible and you will receive a confirmation of receipt within three weeks of your donation.
