Chris Halloran was an investment banker turned professional photographer, and a graduate of Dartmouth College and the Dodge School of Film at Chapman University. Chris believed in the idea of education for all and that belief, combined with his deep and abiding love for Africa, led to the concept of the Christopher P. Halloran School.  Focus on Tanzanian Communities is partnering with a circle of Chris’s friends and family to build the Christopher P. Halloran School in Orkuyene, Tanzania, just outside the Serengeti near the border of Kenya. The school will provide housing for teachers, classrooms, dormitories for students, a water supply, and a kitchen and dining hall.  

Chris passed away from a rare form of melanoma in 2015, but his legacy will live on via this school. We hope you will join us in honoring Chris and his love of life, education, and Tanzania.
