Save Lives. Love Your Neighbor. Send a Student to School.
Over the years Hunger Strike has raised more than $75,000 in order to provide food to hungry people in developing countries, necessities to rural communities, medical supplies to medical clinics, and dig water wells in rural villages in 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.
Sound strange? Maybe but education is not a guarantee in Tanzania. In fact, education is not a right in many developing countries. Many students never go to Secondary School (the United States’ equivalent of High School). Yet, the best way out of poverty is to give someone an education.

A year at St. Sosthenes Orthodox Secondary Boarding School costs approximately $500, which covers the cost of tuition, books, supplies, and room and board. We’re challenging Hunger Strike participants to raise $500 to help deserving Tanzanian students achieve their dreams of an education. All scholarships will be based on need. Grade maintenance will be required to keep the scholarship.
