Malaika Kids Christmas Appeal

Why we need your help

Malaika Kids helps vulnerable children in the Dar es Salaam area of Tanzania.

Children in need are brought to us by the local, overstretched Welfare system. We try to find family as our first resort. Often, we help keep the child with a family member (often a grandparent) by means of monthly food packages, health insurance and educational support.

Children who have absolutely nobody else to turn to are brought to our Children's Village in Mkuranga. There they become a member of a family of no more than ten children per mama. They go through a baby class and pre-primary school on site; primary school locally, and, for some, secondary boarding school. Less academic children typically move back to our Dar es Salaam Reception Home in order to do vocational training before seeking a job.

We have no governmental support. No large corporate is committed to helping us. Our biggest source of income to go on helping the kids remains you, the individual small donors who are our lifeblood.

Fun in the village

Our Christmas Appeal runs from November 25 to December to December 16. All donations during this period will be doubled, based on pledges made by trustees. This will run up to £11,000 (so generating a magnificent £22,000 if we hit this first goal).

In the event that we do hit this target, we hope that folk will continue to donate -- even though we may not be able to double everything.

If you prefer to set up a monthly standing order (our prefered route), we will double your donation for a year. Please contact info-uk@malaika-kids.org and we will handle matters outside this donation page.

Do think about our lovely kids at Christmas! You are very important to them.
