Transfoming Lives
Through K-12 Education

Each Mainsprings student receives a high-quality K-12 education that transforms their lives for the better. Their experience is academically rigorous, develops critical thinking and entrepreneurship skills, and includes instruction in restorative agriculture. As well, each Mainsprings student is loved and supported. 

More than half of students admitted to a Mainsprings school come from families facing extreme rural poverty. These families pay no tuition or expenses throughout the 13 years of their child’s education. Families with the means to contribute to their child’s education pay up to half of the total cost of educating their child – a tuition designed to be affordable for rural Tanzanian families of modest means.
