  • Description


    This is a Daycare and kindergarten- pre-school. It was established in 2021 under the Organisation known as THE BRIGHT GROUP. The project have two program running together, Helping the disadvantage group by Providing education to children from 2 to 5 years with providing accomodations for secondary students girls from poor families coming far away.

    The porpuse of the project is to provide Early Childhood development together with preschool education and giving student facilities for girls coming from poor or problematic families many times both. They stays in Mafinga Iringa in Tanzania.

    It was established in 2021 under the Organisation known as THE BRIGHT GROUP , It works with volunteers, two teachers and matrone- madame who is also a cooking chief. We gives free education to benefit the less fortunate children and families in their area from Pre school to elementary schools . The meaning is to help a children to have a chance of education without dropouts and makes the area of the daycare centre to be safe place for learning and playing for children and girls student. We use a very “modern” approach where we do not differentiate between children with different religions, tribes and poor children. Everyone is equal at this place. At the moment we have fifty children in kindergarden and we offer accommodation to approximatle ten student-girls. The huge problem for us is that majority of the perents don’t have money to pay monthly fees for children at kindergarden and for student-girls accommodation, what makes us a challenge finding every day money for food for children and student-girls. We work to end child labor and providing equal education for all childrens.

    In our society we realize that many girls having a problem to grow and learn the healthy environment. Unfortunally even nowdays happens that in our society caming to education the advantage-opportunity go first to boys. Many times happen that because of the family breakdown, carelessness and poverty many girl-students are forced to drop the education before the boys in early age.

    Our target is to help the poor and needy girls who have lack of space having a privacy in their own family and not having any favoulable learning condition to have at least basic education and accomodation together with providing food, love and care, which they are missing at their home.
