Empowering God’s children through
education, opportunity — and love.

Teaching that disability is not inability.

Tanzania’s first primary school for physically disabled students.

What is Faraja?

In the heart of Tanzania, where quality education is far too often out of reach for disabled children—especially poor disabled children—Faraja Primary School provides a lifetime of opportunity to those who need it most through high-quality education, dedicated medical care, and vital love and support.

Discover the Heartwarming Story of Faraja

Faraja Primary School started as an idea born out of faith by one loving couple. Twenty years later, it has become one of Tanzania’s most celebrated schools for disabled children. In Miracles by the Mountain, explore this moving story and meet the men, women, and children who have made miracles happen here every single day. Featuring dozens of photos of the school and our inspiring students.

The authors have donated the book & all proceeds to The Faraja Fund Foundation.
