  • Description


    Our two children's villages in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, are a beautiful place for disabled children. There are children who have lost their mother during birth or who were abandoned. It is our dearest wish to make them happy throughout their whole life by providing professional and loving care for them. In the other children's village next to this special place we are currently busy with further expansion of a Day Care Center for disabled children with single parents.
    Our staff consists of about 40 local staff members, including care givers, physiotherapists, special teachers, nurses and others, but you can help to make our children even more happy!
