FEZA schools is a group of schools in Tanzania. The schools are situated in Dar es Salaam, Dodoma, Arusha and Zanzibar. The first school, Feza Boys’, started in 1998 at Mikocheni, Dar es Salaam and officially inaugurated by His Excellency the Vice President, late Dr. Omar Ali Juma. Later Feza Primary, Feza Girls’, and others were firmly erected.
It has been said that FEZA stands for the SKY meaning that in the struggle for education, the sky is the limit. Feza has been looking for those potential young boys and girls and help them to reach their goals in education by raising them with knowledge and good behaviour, patriotism and make them be good citizens.
FEZA, which is standing with a motto Be Better Educated, believes that a good nation will stand strong if her people are embodied with good education.
A person with better education will be a source of light illuminating the nation. FEZA aims to light every door of the house with the light of education by giving scholarships to the needy one whether in Feza Schools or Community schools to support the slogan of our Father of nation who said that our big enemies are ignorance, diseases and poverty (adui ujinga, maradhi na umasikini). Ignorance is a prime factor of the other two enemies, diseases and poverty.
FEZA schools logo consists of two features, a black bow bending downward which looks like a foetusin a womb of its mother. This is the stage where all human being has to pass in the process of foetus development, the dark bowed feature represents a human being.
The second feature are two linescoloured in orange raising high from the dark feature. These represent light which is coming from an educated person. Educated person will always appears in a society as a glowing candle at the middle of darkness and helps everybody to see the way which will direct them out of darkness.
