Our main project for 2015 was to expand the orphanage built for street children on the outskirts of Dar-es-salaam in Tanzania, East Africa.
The number of vulnerable and homeless children in Tanzania is continually rising, and help is urgently required to provide a safe shelter for these children. ToHelp has partnered with a local charity, Kind Heart Africa, headed by Reverend Ilukpitiye Pannasekara Thero, to facilitate the expansion of the orphanage.
Number of children expected to benefit: 80+
Cost of building the orphanage: £70,000
Expected time to raise funds and complete the construction of the orphanage: 12 Months
How will the project be managed?
The project will be overseen by Kind Heart Africa and ToHelp trustees
How will the orphanage be run and maintained?
The orphanage extension will be maintained by the orphanage staff and volunteers who dedicate their time to support the welfare of vulnerable children.
