SPECIAL PROJECT IN TANZANIA - ORPHANAGE CENTRE FOR VULNERABLE CHILDREN


 

 

KIND HEART AFRICA

 

 

 

 

Background

 

Tanzania has been facing the challenge of vulnerable children and has become an alarmingly common sight in cities around the world. Tanzania

began to see the problem of vulnerable children in difficult circumstances in the late 80’s. At the same time Convection Rights of Children (1990)

came into force. Kind Heart Africa was founded in line with these Conventions. There are now some 3000-5000 street children in Dar es Salaam. 

The Founders of Kind Heart Africa Centre believe that all children fundamentally have the right to a happy, healthy and safe childhood.


Global and National Development Policies disenfranchised the poor spawning instead years of poverty alleviation strategies that have not touched

the rural farmer that represents 80% of Tanzania’s population. Their children began migrating in the thousands to all the towns in the Country.

Some families are unemployed or are involved in unreliable income earning activities. These parents can not afford to send their children to school

or they do not send them because they need their services at home. Also, many children run away from their homes, because they have been

victims of violence and abuse by-products of crushing poverty


Street life violates the dignity of the children and negatively affects their physical, mental, emotional, moral and overall well-being. Full time street

children experience great difficulties in their daily life including hunger, lack of shelter, sickness and police harassment. In these harsh conditions

the children use drugs, get involved in criminal activities and engage themselves in prostitution. "Survival sex" with adults provides the children

with food and shelter. Unprotected sex leads down the road to HIV/AIDS and certain death.

 

Introduction

 

Kind Heart Africa centre is established under Rev. ILukpitiye Pannasekara Thero in Dar es Salaam and registered with Ministry of Home Affairs bearing

registration number SO 15751 as of 08th February 2008. The Kind Heart Africa  have been working in Tanzania since 1998 are aware of the above

ontext in which the poor find themselves as their focus has always been the option for the poor.  This project brings together the synergy of two

Buddhist Monks whose ministry is to the most excluded and invisible children in Tanzania.  Rev ILukpitiye Pannasekara Thero  has been working with

boys’ education for the past 13 years. Kind Heart Africa was founded by Rev.Pannasekara Thero  to empower young boys  to realize their human

rights within the  Community and the Tanzanian reality today. Rev.Pannasekara Thero  has been working with Street Children for the past 10 years

addressing the Tanzanian Government to the plight of children forced on the streets due to growing poverty rural heightened by the HIV/AIDS

pandemic.

potential and become self-reliant by mobilising resources and advocating for children’s rights.

who suffer  Sexual exploitation.


We intend to work with at least 100 children and youth comprising of 50 males and 50 females in the two Kind Heart Africa Center at Chanika.

when the building will be ready constructed since it is still under construction plan whereas all those children will be given a special emphasis due

to the social and cultural barriers which make them invisible.

 

Outcomes and Activities


Phase I:


During this phase, the need for the children centre will be made evident through the participation of children in the workshops, seminars and

training that will be offered to them by the youth centre staff and other guest from the different organization. The first step in creating this

centre will be to open an office in Chanika where orphans and vulnerable children can stay and receive the following services. 

  • Mentorship and Tutoring to help children  with their schoolwork
  • Continuous Peer education sessions at the center
  • Educative music and drama performances
  • Library services for accessibility of information
  • Life skills Workshops
  • Empower children by providing education and vocational training to make them useful members of society.
  • Use of educative audiovisual materials to stimulate discussion
  • Encourage sporting activities
  • Life skills Session
  • Use of educative audiovisual materials to stimulate discussion

Phase II:


Once the centre is established at Chanika and more services are sought by the children, a larger venue will be needed to accommodate the

children who utilize the centre.  At this point, the following services will also be made available to the children of Chanika, and this will be the

Home for vulnerable children project.

  • Counseling about sexual health and life topics.

Expected Outputs

  • Increase the number of vulnerable children who possess the correct information about HIV/AIDS
  • Decreased stigmatization among youth with HIV/AIDS in the community
  • Making them self dependent on their nurtured talents thus earn their living. E.g. Art, music, sports, Agriculture etc.

Expected Results

  • Increase the number of  vulnerable children who possess the correct information about Life Skills
  • Increased trend of information seeking behavior among children.
  • Making them self dependent on their nurtured talents thus earn their living. E.g. Art, music, sports, Agriculture etc.

 

Sustainability

such as, voluntary counseling and family life education. Other activities will be, offering of primary education, secondary education and vocational

Year 2010 was a very important year for Kind Heart Africa. Dar es Salaam Association in Spain http://www.tanzaniahogar.org/ donated

special donation to build a first building for orphanage. Then we built it  and opened for children on 02nd April 2010 and children started to

resident there and go to school. It was very wonderful event. Thank you for all the members in Spain. See more photos and information about

that on following links on the internet.

After we opened our first building for children wonderful things happened. Mr P.S Patel came to attend our opening ceremony. After that he

made some communication with his friends and he found “Reach out now” http://www.reachoutnow.org/ UK based organization and Mr

Joshi Sathyavan and his family. They were very interesting to help for this Orphanage project in Tanzania. He came to visit the place August

2010 and donated special donation for build a Dormitory for orphans. Then we built it and opened 28th August 2011. Now we can accommodate

70 children. But, currently we have 30 orphans. But, we hope to collect more children in future. You can see about this new dormitory opening

information at following links.

Currently only one organization is helping for these children to Feeding, schooling and etc..  But if we want to increase children to we have to

find some other friends to help for that. Therefore I thought to invite to my friends around the world to invite to joint this special target. Please read the following 365 DONORS PROJECT for that.

 

365 DONORS PROJECT

 

FEED A CHILD

 

 

I am very happy to share this good news with you!

I had a dream to help vulnerable, orphan and street children in Tanzania for a long time as many children are begging on the road, do not go to

school or have a safe place to call ‘home’, something many of us take for granted.
Last year (2010) I built one building for children which was sponsored by “Dar es salaam Association in Spain” Currently 30 children are residing at

the Kind Heart Africa Centre at Chanika , Buyuni, Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.

 

Most recently, a UK based organization named “Reach out now” helped to build a dormitory for 70 children. (www.reachoutnow.org ). This

opened officially on August 28th this year.

 

 

At present we are receiving financial support for monthly expenses from “Dar es Salaam Association” in Spain.( www.tanzaniahogar.org)

This is the only one organization currently helping to support our monthly expenses at the Kind Heart Africa Centre.

It is not possible to support more children and help them without finding additional donors. Therefore I thought I would write to my all friends

and followers around the world to see whether you would be able to support this vital service in Tanzania.

 

How you can help?

 

It is very easy to do!

We invite you to sponsor a day in the year, donating, for example, 150 USD, 100 Euro or 100 GBP commemorating any of your special days,

such as your birthday or wedding anniversary or just if you are feeling generous!

So, for example, my Scottish friend Heather Suttie has offered to donate 100GBP on her birthday which is the 1st of September. This donation

means that we can feed children for a day. At present we have 30 children and I would like to be able to look after 100 children with this

additional financial support.

 

I hope you can think about this 365 Donors program.

 

Also please tell your friends to join us!


This is a non religious organization and we act to help the most vulnerable and needy kids in Tanzania.
