Our Mission

We aim to support as many vulnerable children as possible, through our flexible care programme. This aims to find the best solution for each child; whether fostered with wider family or housed in our unique Children’s Village, we ensure they are properly looked after, go to school and have the opportunity to develop and thrive as individuals.


Local Solution

This is a Tanzanian project run by Mama Najma Manji and the Tanzanian management team. Our role is to fund, plan and enable, so that over time the operation becomes increasingly robust, self reliant and self sufficient.


Transparent and Accountable

We are transparent in our operations and fundraising activities and are accountable to our donors, to regulatory agencies, and ultimately to the community we aim to help.



By making effective use of dedicated volunteers in our fundraising countries, we are able to direct over 97% of money raised to our Tanzanian operations.


Adoption/Fostering Preference

Our first priority with any child is to seek to find a means of getting the child fostered, using our Relatives’ Support Programme. We are also very much in favour of adoption (though up to now this has not been easy in Tanzania). However, we will always try to help children, and for many, the Children’s Village is their  only way forward.
