Despite being among the most developed regions in the country, as well as reductions in national poverty rates, living conditions in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, remain low for large portions of the population. As the city’s population grows, an increasing number of people lack access to basic services.
Children are the greatest victims. Sanitary conditions can lead to early mortality or, in many cases, children assuming the roles and responsibilities of heads of households. Furthermore, most are unaware of their rights, making them vulnerable to exploitation, violence and dropping out of school.
Amani Orphanage provides both a safe, nurturing environment and a formal education to every vulnerable child who enters their doors. Together, they are building a more stable future for Tanzania. With our partners CORE Educational Services and Time To Help Foundation: Tanzania, Embrace Relief is providing support for Amani Orphanage to aid in the education of these children.
Currently, the residents live in a rented house in the Kigamboni district of Dar es Salaam, but their rent is about to run out. A kind soul has donated the land upon which the new facilities will be built, but the structures -including a dormitory for boys – are incomplete.
Renovation of the boys’ dormitory
Duration of the project: June 15th to August 15th
Project budget: $40,000.00
Please help these children grow into confident, independent adults by making a donation. An investment in these children’s future is an investment in Tanzania’s future.
