About the Steven Tito Academy


In 2004, my friend, Terri Place, and her husband, Caito Mwandu, had a ‘simple’ dream to open a home for orphaned children in Bagamoyo, Tanzania.  In reality though, most children there are not completely orphaned, but come from deeply broken, desperately poor homes where HIV/AIDS has destroyed family structure, as well as physical and mental health. 

For this reason, Baobab has kept the orphanage small and family style, so that it can stay immersed in the Bagamoyo community. Over the years they have built homes for families, gotten hundreds of children into school, sponsored dozens of income generation projects, helped people to access treatment and operations, served breakfast to thousands of children in need, sponsored mobile HIV testing and helped young people to quit drugs and alcohol. Above all, their approach is holistic, taking into account the various social, economic and psychological aspects of poverty, in order to come up with sustainable solutions. 

STA (Steven Tito Academy) was established in 2012 as a program of The Baobab Home orphanage in Bagamoyo, Tanzania.  As the kids of the Baobab Home reached school age, there were no good options for their education. Local schools are overcrowded, hitting  is commonplace, and educational resources are nonexistent. Because of this, most Tanzanian children underachieve in school and their schools under-challenge and under-serve them.  

STA offers quality, safe education for the kids from the Baobab Home and the Bagamoyo community. It has high expectations for all students and aims to create empowered thinkers who can contribute to a better Tanzania.  The “green” school focuses on providing a well-rounded education that includes science, math, English, arts and physical education and is tailored to each unique student.

STA seeks out bright students from poor families who cannot afford an English medium primary school. All STA parents invest their time in a variety of committees (such as the gardening, cleaning and cooking committees), which helps the school reduce overhead expenses. They also hold regular meetings with the parents, both one-on-one and as a group, to ensure that they are invested in their child's education. STA is not just about the students, but about their families and the Bagamoyo community. For more information, please go to  https://www.steventitoacademy.org/

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid." - Albert Einstein
 
This is one of my favorite quotes for the school year. Although it is inconclusive whether or not Albert Einstein actually said this, it doesn't take away from the sentiment of the saying. Any time you are struggling, remember that not everyone is going to be good at every single subject. What is important is that you try your best and remind yourself of your strengths.
