Each child represents a future, the future of the community, and the future of Tanzania
Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world. It has over 1,000,000 children who have been orphaned as a result of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and many thousands who live on the streets. These orphans are often malnourished and at times go hungry due to a lack of in adequate food supplies (nutrition) and access to clean water. Others have stopped attending school due to a lack of the money to pay for tuition or basic school supplies or in the case of older girls the cultural requirement to care for their younger siblings.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
- Nelson Mandela
Taking in to consideration that the average daily income in Tanzania is less than a dollar, education can be simply seen as an unattainable luxury.
The One Foundation will be working together with the Wings Of Kilimanjaro team to assist in identifying key areas of need in local education programs in the Kilimanjaro region.
