Welcome to The Namayana Project! Namayana means "blessing" in Swahili. The Namayana Project is the vision of two friends, one in America and one in Tanzania, to create schools in Tanzania. It is our vision and hope to be a blessing to children in Tanzania by opening schools there.

We have partnered with two friends in the Nanja/Losimingori area in order to accomplish this goal. One, Emmanuel Laizer, is the senior pastor of Olomaiyana Baptist Church. The other, Langoi Sailepu, is the second master of Nanja Secondary School. Together, we have been working towards this project for two years.
