Save Lives. Love Your Neighbor. Send a Student to School.
Over the years Hunger Strike has raised more than $100,000 in order to provide food to hungry people, necessities to rural communities, medical supplies to medical clinics, and water wells in rural villages throughout Tanzania. However, one of the greatest things we can do is educate a student. So, this year the funds the teens raise will benefit St. Paul’s Mission Is Possible in Tanzania by sending deserving students to school.
Education is not a right in many developing countries. Sound strange? Maybe, but education is not a guarantee in Tanzania. In fact, many students never go to Secondary School (the United States’ equivalent of high school) because public school is not free! Yet, the best way out of the cycle of poverty is to give someone an education.
So, this year Hunger Stike teens raise funds to benefit St. Paul’s Mission Is Possible in Tanzania by sending deserving students to school.

A year at St. Sosthenes Orthodox Secondary Boarding School costs approximately $600, which covers the cost of tuition, books, supplies, and room and board. We’re challenging Hunger Strike participants to raise at least $600 to help a deserving Tanzanian student achieve their dreams of an education. All scholarships will be based on need and academic achievement. Grade maintenance will be required to hold the scholarship.
