Hope for Tanzania

Organized by: Gemma Green

Among the most prevalent issues in Tanzania are those presented by the lack of resources, residual effects of a colonial past, and the impact of HIV/AIDS. Only a little over half of children attend school, and high levels of infant and child mortality prevail. In Kilimanjaro, many children have been orphaned due to HIV/AIDS. Many have been abused or abandoned, and their families struggle to provide for their most basic needs. The youngest generations are forced to grow up too quickly.

Children are every community's hope for a better future. Nurturing future generations begins with a single lesson, a simple smile, or just a bit of extra attention. I am seeking funds for an international volunteering assignment for three months in order to strengthen a community's greatest asset -- their children.
