The Minnesota Academy English Primary School (ages 7 to 13) is currently home to two graduating classes from the TAFCOM preschool. TAFCOM resides within the village of Pasua, one of the most destitute areas in Moshi, a town which rests at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. The completion of the RE/MAX Results pre-school classrooms in January of 2013 allowed the 35 student school population to more than double to its current population of eighty-five pre-school students. All TAFCOM students are identified as aids orphans (in which one or more of their parents has died from the disease) or they are marginalized by other desperate poverty related circumstances.
As a result of our Hope For Education fund-raising events, the building of the Minnesota Academy opened in January 2015. The TAFCOM pre-school children will now have the opportunity to continue their education within an English immersion environment designed to give them a distinct advantage over public primary school students. Building the Minnesota Academy campus will take place over the course of the next five to six years and will consist of fourteen classrooms, an assembly, laboratories, a library, administration offices, a kitchen, a dining hall, a dispensary, dormitories and sports facilities.
