    My name is Elizabeth I'm living in Arusha Tanzania, I opened a non government organization which registered which strives to provide basic needs and education to the children who are lacking the opportunity to get better education due to the poverty or family instability.This organization offers same opportunity to all children and consider them as equal and they deserve to have a bright future. it also helps to protect the right of women who are considered to be fruitless in today's community.

    MEET THE TEAM.

    1. ELIZABETH WHO IS THE DIRECTOR OF THE ORGANIZATION

    2. BETINA WHO IS THE TEACHER OF THE SCHOOL

    3. STELA WHO HELPS US ON COOKING AND CLEANLINESS


    OUR MISSION

    OUR VISION.
    To establish a community where children and women achieves their rights, protection and equality.

    THEMATIC AREAS
    1. SUPPORT CHILDREN TO ACCESS EDUCATION. We offer the same opportunity to all children and considering them as equal and they deserve to have a bright future. This is done through provision of school materials and school fees at the same time supporting their families to have sustainable income.

    2. WOMEN EMPOWERMENT PROGRAMS. We help to protect the right of women who are considered to be fruitless in today's community. this is done through provision of education and seminars to women so that they can do better and contribute a lot towards the development of the nation.

    Most Mother's of our kids are single mothers, they struggle a lot to have enough, even to have food every day. We just recently started to make workshops for them that they can learn more skills to earn some money to improve their lifes. For this we need you workawayers, if you have skills like baking, decorating, cooking jams, sewing, creating hanging gardens, making natural cosmetics or anything that could be selled in the streets, you could help us a lot. We just need to see which materials are available in Tanzania, we could discuss before you arrive about your ideas for the case that some of the things we need are only avabile in your country. Now my actual workawayers are starting to teach them how to bake cakes. Our marketing idea is to make international cakes that we can provide something new. Maybe later we could make a service for party's, means we cook, bake and decorate. An other idea they love is to make natural cosmetics and they would like to learn how to sew clothes, we just would need to think about how to get the machines for it.

    Additional we are starting to teach English to the women, if you could continue that would be great.

    3. NUTRITION IMPROVEMENT FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN. We address the problem of nutrition to the children through training of the parents on the balanced diet and capacitate them on producing and using nutritious foods. We also support children who are the critical stages recover from malnutrition.
