About the School

The Dr. John Chacha Secondary School and Institute of Leadership (DJCSSIL) will serve a minimum of 200 students at the City of Hope (COH) campus in Ntagacha, Tanzania. We are providing them with the opportunity to continue to achieve the academic, physical and spiritual growth they achieved at Destiny Primary School (our COH primary school). DJCSSIL will strive for excellence and prepare our students for post-secondary studies, either at university or vocational school, and/or for taking up their roles as leaders who walk with wisdom and understanding in their local communities and beyond.

VIDEO: Project Overview



The secondary school has several important collateral benefits. It is bringing new hope to the local community for their children’s futures. It is keeping young girls from being pressed into FGM (female genital mutilation) and child marriages. It is continuing to teach the children of former enemy clans to become unified and work together.

In memory of Dr. John Chacha

The secondary school is honoring and memorializing Dr. John Chacha, the late founder of COH as it is fulfilling another part of the great dream that God gave him. 


Fund Raising Progress

Give to the secondary school

The school itself is nearly completed but we need teacher housing in order to retain and attract quality teachers (it is also a government requirement).  In addition, we need to upgrade our athletic field, purchase more land for farming and purchase a school bus.  Please help us to reach these goals.
