MARTI School Bathroom Construction Project in Tanzania

Maryland Turkish American Inhabitants Youth (MARTI) aims to raise $12,000 to construct a modern bathroom facility for a primary school in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and to send a dozen MARTI youth to tour the site and meet the students they will be helping.





Thank You

We have achieved our goal for this campaign.

We appreciate your ongoing support.

This will be a wonderful opportunity for MARTI youth, who will enjoy a character-building experience, and a life-changing project for thousands of our friends in Tanzania, who will be able to learn in a healthier environment.

We take them for granted here in the U.S., but bathroom facilities are a luxury out of reach in many countries. In Tanzania, less than half of all rural public schools possess proper toilet facilities, and functional handwashing stations exist in less than 45 percent of rural school buildings. This situation leaves children at high risk for diseases that can make it difficult to learn and reach their potential.

With your help, MARTI is planning to put an end to this situation and create a healthier future for our friends at the Mavurunza Primary School in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We are aiming to raise $12,000 for the construction of a modern bathroom facility that will bring the school in line with recommended best sanitation practices. This gift will make a priceless impact on the lives of hundreds of students every year. And as part of this project, a group of 12 MARTI youth will also be able to journey to Dar es Salaam, assisting in the construction, engaging with the students they’re helping, and gaining an eye-opening life experience in a new and unfamiliar part of the world.

Please, donate today and help MARTI make a life-changing impact for thousands of students in Tanzania for years to come!
