Who We Are
Tanzania School Trust provides financial support to Hill Crest School, which mainly target the youth who would otherwise miss out on high quality education and access to daily nutritious meals. Tanzania School Trust is responsible for food needed for all children, for the school rent and the teachers salaries. That way, we don't only offer the insurance to parents that their kids are happy and fed, but we also allow the children's families to go to work.
The idea of Tanzania School Trust solely supporting Hill Crest School came from Tiphaine Nilias, founder, who volunteered at the school in October 2019 and created a strong bond with the school, its kind spirit and its awesome children!
Meet The Team
Founder of Tanzania School Trust
Tiphaine went to volunteer at Hill Crest in October 2019, leaving her full time job as a regional account manager for 3 weeks. Over there, she built a very close bound with Hill Crest School’s director, Elisabth. L. Sakei. Throughout many discussions, Tiphaine realised Hill Crest was not going to be funded by its normal chairty and took it upon herself to keep this school alive.
Tiphaine is orginally from France but lives in London. Her passion for making things right by those who cannot live by the same rights as people of the “Western World”, is her main motivation to organise social events that will raise enough funds.

Founder and director of Hill Crest School, our local hero and coordinator
Elizabeth is the founder and director of Hill Crest School. She founded this school in order to give the poorest kids the chance to have a better future, by insisting on giving them the best education and at least one meal per day to keep the kids at school. Elizabeth is from Arusha, Tanzania, and she is the main operator of Tanzania School Trust.
Corrine is a real “fire starter” and enabled Tanzania School Trust to raise funds when times were most critical. Corrine has a passion for social work, and enabling others to stand up when most people prefer to turn a blind eye. Her support is the reason why Tanzania School Trust exists! Corrine is a trustee for Tanzania School Trust. Outside of this, Corrine is the vice president of a data analystics firm and lives in London.
Jemima is s student at St Andrews University in Scotland, and simultaneously volunteers with Tanzania School Trust. In 2018, Jemima made a trip to Uganda with her school where she fundraised for various student-related activities. Having seen first hand the difference both financial and non- monetary support can make, Jemima is now taking over content and communications duties for Tanzania School Trust. Supporting our school is also a way for Jemima to experience and put to practice the marketing, communications and operations learnings she does during her time at University.
