  • Description


    Due to lack of government funding, virtually no affordable nursery schools exist for parents in the slums, Msekwa and Flora all are 20 years old girls, with the help of our families, we took it upon ourselves to open and run a free weekday nursery school in response to this need,

    Currently six of every ten female youth in Dar’s slums will get pregnant before the age of 18. In addition to running the nursery school, I Msekwa and my partner Flora we aims to address this issue through hosting classes in sexual and reproductive health. we empowers young women through discussions of birth control, sexually transmitted diseases and more.

    We are always looking to expand our programs. Please let us know if you have any ideas!

  • Help


    Travelers will help teaching subjects especial English to the children that Msekwa and Flora founded, these two girls are 20 years old and Msekwa is orphan of all two parents, they are all from the slums and their nursery help the entire slum toddlers since there are no other nursery in the entire slum area,

    Volunteers will also help on art project with children, like drawing, painting, dancing and singing ,

    Also volunteers will help in the house of Msekwa and Flora on cooking, arranging house and educate about hygiene.

    Volunteers will also do shopping with Flora and Msekwa of children materials like uniforms, stationary etc

    Also volunteers will help fund raise for children meals and other materials since families in the slums cant afford that much on children meals while they are in the nursery and this hinder the children to concentrate, most of the families in the slums that Flora and Msekwa helping them cant afford single dollar meal in a day
