What we do

Children attending primary school

We are a small charity based in Scotland with our hearts and minds focussed on creating a better world for children in Tanzania.

We work in partnership with Watoto Trust, a local community organisation, to develop initiatives that make a lasting difference to the lives of vulnerable children and their families.

Raising educational attainment 

Primary education is free in Tanzania, but families often struggle to meet the cost of buying a school uniform and learning materials, such as books and pencils.

We ensure that 100 children every year are provided with all the essentials to access school and gain an education. Our partner organisation also provides after-school learning support and acts as a link worker between the school and the children's carers.

Improving health and wellbeing

Poverty has a damaging impact on children’s health and wellbeing. We provide free or affordable 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 if they become ill. 

Tackling material deprivation

Many families live in desperate poverty and often can’t afford to feed their children, buy basic goods, or maintain their home. Through our partner we provide bedding, blankets, basic furniture, and carry out essential repairs to make sure children get a good night’s sleep, are safe from the elements, and can sustain their schooling.
