St Jude's provides a free, high-quality education to 1,800 disadvantaged, bright students at their primary and secondary campuses in Arusha, Tanzania. They also have a program to support graduates through higher education. 

High-Rise has proudly supported the School of St Jude's in Tanzania for nearly 10 years, in a number of ways: 

  • High-Rise Club has made 5 visits to the school since 2012, with some 79 visitors in all.

  • Through visits and the connection with the school, the High-Rise community now proudly sponsors 23 students, including our own club student Irene. We have also for many years helped students with disabilities.

  • Since 2016 year High-Rise has raised over $110,000 for St Jude's school projects. The funds raised by the club and their friends have been used to install solar hot water heaters, support the school’s welfare program and also support the special medical fund. 

Recently a breakfast event, hosted by High-Rise, raised over $35,000 for the Beyond St Jude's Program, which helps transition graduates to university.
