A school uniform can be transformational to a child who dreams of the opportunities an education can bring. It symbolizes their enthusiasm to learn and their unlimited potential. Wonder Woman has her cape. Zorro has his mask. Because of Red Sweater Project, kids in rural East Africa not only have bright new school uniforms—they have a brand new school where they can learn and thrive.
For these students, putting on a red sweater means access to a high-quality high school education at Mungere School, established by Red Sweater Project. Beyond the opportunity to learn, the school gives children the means to move their entire community forward.
At the Mungere School, students learn creative problem solving and to use their education to invest in themselves, their families, their villages, and the world. It's a ripple effect. And it starts with a red sweater.
Red and blue colors, traditionally worn by the indigenous Masaai tribe, inspired our school uniform of red sweaters with blue skirts or pants. This design represents our commitment to celebrate—not replace—tribal heritage.
Our integrated approach helps students thrive. In addition to a well-rounded education, our students receive medicine and health care, nutritious meals at school, and a safe, supportive environment within the community.
With Africa's rapidly growing youth population, there are not enough secondary schools to accommodate all children in countries like Tanzania.
Attending these schools often costs USD $500 per student per year, making them unaffordable for most families living in poverty. That's why Mungere Secondary School is so important to the community.
A high school education from Red Sweater Project is unique in three distinct ways.
It’s not enough to build buildings: Our qualified teaching staff brings the classroom to life.
This isn’t learned in a book. It’s cultivated by first-hand experience.
We make sure our impact in the local and global community is a positive one.
