Telescopes to Tanzania is a project of Astronomers Without Borders (AWB). Since 2010, Universe Awareness and Telescopes to Tanzania have collaborated on bringing astronomy-based science education to Tanzania. This collaboration has already produced many outcomes, including teacher training, telescopes and other science equipment for schools, as well as hands on classroom experiences.

In collaboration with UNAWE-Tanzania, AWB is looking for funds to establish a Centre for Science in Tanzania. This project is also a recommended project of the IAU Office of Astronomy for Development (OAD) and has thus been placed on its wish list.

In order to build “The Centre for Science Education and Observatory” in Tanzania, $14,000 (10,000€) is needed to set this project in motion.
