Welcome to Malaika Kids

Malaika Kids is a network of charities run by volunteers rescuing  orphans and the most vulnerable children from the streets of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and gives them a stable, cared for upbringing.

We have fundraising organisations in The Netherlands; the United Kingdom  and the USA   and the operating organisation in Tanzania

We work with the Ministry of Social Welfare in Dar es Salaam to provide support through two programmes. Our Relatives Support Programme for children fostered with relations, and our award-winning Children’s Village at Mkuranga. Where possible they are reunited with wider family members, willing and able to foster them, with assistance from our Relatives Support Programme.

Where there are no relatives, the children move to our purpose built, award-winning Children’s Village in the country, where they will grow up in family groups within a local community.

On leaving school, they may return to Dar es Salaam and live once more at our Reception Home while studying or training for employment.
