Project Info

Project Description

In 2019 MPA received a $15,000 grant specifically to support a particular CPS Partners project in Zanzibar.  Victoria Issack, a longtime member of the Welezo Young Friends Self Help Group, runs a primary school as her income project, and has been able to give more children access to education by increasing the school’s capacity from 68 to 153 students in less than one year.  Victoria’s Academy provided direct scholarship support for young students in need, painted the entire school, expanded existing classrooms, and added additional space and equipment.  Further, the school supported the other members of the microfinance self-help group by purchasing goods and services from other group members’ income projects.  Lastly, Victoria’s Academy started a poultry project which provides needed protein for hungry students and generates extra sales income.
