Help the Tanzanian Kiddos Round 2!

$2,388 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 10 months
I went to Usa River, Tanzania independently last summer to volunteer for 3 months and stumbled across a daycare/nursery school center run out of a home in serious need of help. Each day I fell more in love with Tanzania and  all the children I met and wanted to make some positive changes at the center. I worked to get a dental hygiene room constructed, kitchen and bathroom sinks installed, a chicken coop built and stocked with chickens for eggs and selling capital, and the children's curriculum revamped. Check out, my new website outlining the project,  or  my personal blog I kept while in Tanzania, to read all about what was done last summer!
In less than one month I return to Tanzania to continue to improve the Vipaje Daycare Center and hopefully the lives of the children as well. 

2018's Project Goals: Donation Destinations

All donations go towards the children. 

Sponsor the formal education of the school’s one teacher: As of yet, Madam Rachel has not completed a formal education, but she is very bright and has a love for the children and their learning. Providing her with an education, benefits her and the future of all the children she will teach. We all know that education is the key.

Infant/Toddler classroom & bathroom construction: Currently children under the age of four have no  official classroom at the center and toddlers/babies are free to crawl all over. Many of the room in the house do not have doors and some doors to the outside are also open, so a classroom for the children would safeguard their wanderings and allow for more structured activities and learning opportunities. Sanitation is always a concern, so attaching a bathroom with proper plumbing would help to ensure the children’s health and cut back on spread of germs while also allowing for better supervision.

Playground:  As of now there is just a rickety homemade swing set, consisting of two swings. Since the children spend a lot of time outside playing I know that a playground would transform the center and their afternoons of play. It would also eliminate the children wandering off or using non-play items for entertainment.

 Miscellaneous: More mattresses/bed covers for nap time
Food supplies
More chickens for the chicken coop

Donation for Cradle of Love Baby Home: Cradle of Love orphanage  is where I initially started my volunteer journey in TZ and while they are always staffed with volunteers, if there is something the children/facility need I would like to be able to assist and give back.

Thank you so much in advance from the bottom of my heart! Because of your donations last year so much was able to accomplished! Together, let's do even more this summer! :)
