Sponsor a child

Sponsoring a child gives life & hope for a better future

Children in poverty are especially vulnerable and face uncertain futures. Every child’s experience is unique but we all need the same things love, security, health, and wellbeing. Your donation helps us to provide a child with ongoing care that includes a safe and loving home, food, health care, clothing, emotional support, and education from kindergarten to college/tertiary/vocational. We have more than 100 children from one year old to twenty years old currently enrolled in different schools around Tanzania.

Be part of positive change and transform a child’s world today.

What is child sponsorship?

Child sponsorship connects two people – a sponsor with a generous heart and a child living in poverty. From toddlerhood to young adulthood, our child sponsorship program equips kids with crucial life and job skills to break the cycle of poverty. For good. As a sponsor, you’ll be able to see your impact firsthand through letters and photos from your child. You’ll see how much you’re helping a child when they need it most.

We believe it’s a big deal to give monthly to a child you may never physically meet but we know that the relationship you will build with the child you support and the impact you will have on their life is totally worth the investment. We desire for you to truly know the child you sponsor and we guarantee they will know you. Your child will rely on your monthly support to attend school. They will look forward to writing you messages, sharing their academic progress, and sending video messages from time to time.

We use a lifecycle approach in our educational programs that focuses on the needs of children at all stages of development: early childhood, basic education, adolescence, and youth. We are committed to seeing each child who is selected receive a scholarship, graduate, and receive their certificate diploma, or degree.

Take an extra mile with sponsorship

and take your sponsored child to a private school

The concept ‘private school’ means something very different to Tanzania and the rest of the world. Private schools play a vital role in the education system because there just aren’t enough public schools for all the children. In 2003, the Tanzanian government introduced “free primary education for all children” and in 2015, “free secondary education for all”. Both of these policies are an amazing stepping stone in the development of Tanzania. Unfortunately, the country has such few resources meaning all schools quickly became oversubscribed. Most public schools have class sizes of over 80 students with 1 teacher. As you can imagine, the teacher really struggles to give the children a decent education. These schools also have no or very little water, no or poor-quality toilets, and almost no money for school maintenance.

Private schools have many of the facilities a student needs to learn and thrive in class including safe classrooms, toilets for the students, handwashing facilities, two school meals, clean water, and high-quality teachers.
