  • Need


    The project targets orphans in Tanzania that live in poverty. The project will help to give them a much brighter future and increase their chances of getting out of the poverty line by their adulthood.


    The orphanage will provide 24 orphans with safe, comfortable shelter 24/7 alongside providing regular meals, access to health care and education in an incredible private school next door. The orphanage will give the orphans resources they need to live a healthy life and gain skills/knowledge for their future as a working adult.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To provide regular meals, water, education and access to health care for the orphans


    » We will buy food, water, uniforms, pay school fees and health care costs alongside employ staff to look after the orphans for one year

    What success will look like

    We will show how the orphans health is being maintained and their progress in their education from summative assessments.

  • Impact


    The orphanage will give the orphans a chance at making a better life for themselves. By simply ensuring the orphans are well fed, looked after and have access to an amazing education, their chances of developing skills and knowledge will dramatically increase. They can go onto getting a decent job in the future to provide for themselves and their family to reduce the chances of living in poverty.


    The orphanage could close down if there wasn't enough funding for it. However we continue daily to fundraise to ensure this project stays running forever. The local NGO we partner with also works hard every day to ensure the orphanage is sustainable.


    We will communicate regularly using social media and newsletters to update donors on exactly where their money is going. We also believe in emailing donors directly if possible to ensure we show our thanks to their amazing generosity. We will also email our annual report to donors.

    We have partnered with a local NGO in Tanzania who know exactly how best to manage the orphanage and ensure the children are looked after properly. Our charity has worked hard to raise £20,000 to build the orphanage because we are so dedicated to helping children living in poverty in Tanzania.
