We believe that every child deserves to feel happy, healthy, and safe, but in Tanzania so many children are growing up without the basic essentials they need to thrive.

We are a small, volunteer-led charity with our hearts and minds focussed on improving the lives of children affected by poverty in the south west of Tanzania.

We work closely with Watoto Trust, a community-based organisation, to support 100 vulnerable children each year to gain an education, access health care, and improve their home environments.

What We Do

Education

Primary education is free in Tanzania, but families often struggle to meet the cost of buying school uniforms and learning resources. We meet the cost of all the essentials children need to gain an education.

Health

Poverty has a damaging impact on children’s health and wellbeing. We provide free access to health care and treatment for children and their families. This helps to increase their chances of staying healthy and making a good recovery from illness.

Home

Many families often can’t afford to feed their children, buy basic goods, or carry out essential repairs to their homes. We provide bedding, blankets, basic furniture, and help with maintenance to make sure children feel safe and secure in their home.

How to Help

We can all take action to change the world we live in and make it a better place for everyone. The smallest contribution can make a huge difference. Every pound you donate will directly support the work of Watoto Trust.

You can now make a single donation or regular gift to the charity through Virgin Money Giving! If you want to fundraise for us, you can also set up your own fundraising page and keep in touch with your sponsors. It’s quick, simple and you have complete control over your donations.
