The preschool and primary school are located in Karatu, three hours west of Arusha. The secondary school, Tumaini Senior, is located in Makuyuni, an hour west of Arusha. The oldest of the schools, Tumaini Junior, is a K-7 school, opened in 2004, and its graduates consistently rank in the top 1% among Tanzania’s over 15,000 primary schools. Tumaini Schools recruit primarily from families residing in the local areas.
