About Free Fall for Africa

On July 8th, 3 generations of the Loge family, including an 85 years-young former school teacher, will be jumping out of an airplane to raise funds for classroom equipment and school supplies for a school nearing completion in Tanzania that will eventually accommodate 500 students.

When Cathleen Loge of Encompass Benefits and HR Solutions pondered her upcoming birthday she decided she wanted to do something exhilarating that would benefit students in Tanzania. Sharing her plans to go skydiving, both her daughter and mother jumped on the idea and will join her for a 3 generation skydive. The multi-generation jumpers are gathering pledges for every second of free fall during their adventure. They have also set aside room for additional jumpers to gather pledges and join them on July 8th.

The three soon-to-be skydivers are jumping in support of local non-governmental organization, Hope for the Nations, who will be helping to coordinate the jump with Okanagan Skydive. Proceeds will help purchase desks and equipment for the school along with books and necessary materials for education. These purchases will be the culmination of a 2 year effort, undertaken by Loge, to build a high school for 500 students in Tanzania.

About the Project

In Tanzania, 95% of students never proceed beyond elementary school because high schools are scarce and expensive- leading kids to have to work to support themselves; consequently leaving no time for an education. The Living Waters Secondary School Project aims to change that for local kids in Tanzania. The school is currently under construction thanks to the generous gifts of Okanagan businesses and residents who understand the benefits of supporting education as the key to economic growth and a step toward the eradication of poverty in Africa.
