We based to provide education for the small children as we believe child future successfully and advancement in life is greatly influenced by their ealy eduction as those who goes to school early develop an interest in education than those who did not.. Early education is a very big challange for many children in Tanzania as many parents ignor these education until their children grown up.

    Our mission is to reduce this gape of many children who are not going to school, to develop an interest in education as well as to motivate their parents to understand the impotance of this early education for their children. Since we are very passionate to teach and volunteer for the better future of children in our community, we believe together with volunteers we can join and make this changes in our community.
