Jones Family Foundation
St. Francis University College of Health and Allied Sciences (SFUCHAS) is a relatively new college purposely situated in a smaller city, Ifakara so that the university could maintain a rural focus.
Provision Charitable Foundation has partnered with SFUCHAS to provide tuition fee and living costs for students in the five-year medical doctor program and we have graduated 21 doctors, 10 women and 11 men. Provision Charitable Foundation is presently assisting 3 graduates taking post-graduate specialization.
Provision Charitable Foundation has built a women’s residence at SFUCHAS so that 300 young women would have safe and comfortable on-campus accommodation.
Trevor and Dixie Jones formed the Jones Family foundation to assist various agencies working to deal with poverty around the world.
