Project: The Kindergarten of Joy

Location: Mafinga Iringa, Tanzania

Help us raise €9963 to build 2 classrooms, an office and a toilet block for The Kindergarten of Joy. This would allow 80 children to stay out of child labour and human trafficking, instead they go to school for free, and hundreds more in the future.

About the Kindergarten of Joy

The Kindergarten of Joy is a school in Mafinga Iringa in Tanzania. This school gives free education to benefit the less fortunate children and families in their area. To give all the children a chance at education without dropouts. This school uses a very “modern” approach where they do not differentiate between children with different religions or tribes. Everyone is equal at this place. At this moment there are already 4 existing classrooms and there are 13 teachers working, all teaching different classes.

The the pictures below of the Kindergarten of Joy in Tanzania.

What is the problem of the Kindergarten of Joy?

Currently there are many problems for the Kindergarten of Joy. Problems like there is not enough money for food, teachers are underpaid (and sometimes not even paid), there are not enough facilities to teach, there is no money for school uniforms and transportation is a problem for children to get efficiently to and from school.

What are the problems for the children?

Many children struggle every day and have no hope for the future, some of the children’s problems are that their parents are in prison, there is not enough money for food, having to take care of the elderly, parents passed away or they have HIV. As a result of all these problems children aged 6-14 years have to work in these regions. With your donations we can give children education, hope and a chance on a better future.

 

If we build the classrooms, there will be no costs anymore for The Kindergarten of Joy, therefore they can allow children to go to school for free. This way there are no debts, children get free education and do not have to work or take care of their families at home, because they get food in school.

What we will realise with your help

With your support Charity The Next Smile is able to provide for food and better facilities. We intend to raise €9963 by the 1st of August 2020, which will allow us to build the 2 classrooms, an office and a toilet block (see below why €9963).

 

When our goal is reached, we will focus on raising the funds that are needed to provide food for the children, with every €3 a child would have free lunch for a month. This amount does not seem a lot of money to you, but over there it is much needed.

Why donate to us? What will happen with your donation exactly?

The donations will be 100% used for the Kindergarten of Joy in Tanzania. Charity The Next Smile takes 0% of the funded money for costs, costs made for this project are already covered by volunteers.

 

We also make sure that there are no middle men involved between Charity The Next Smile and the Kindergarten of Joy. We are in direct contact with the director of the school. This way there is not a third party involved who can make a profit on any transaction.

 

When the goal is reached, a volunteer of The Next Smile will personally visit The Kindergarten of Joy, this is the moment of the handover of the funds raised. Then our associate will personally make sure that the funds are used in the benefit of the children.

 

With these measurements we make sure that your donations are 100% used in the benefit of the children who will use the school in the future. 

So please help us reach the goal to provide education in Mafinga Iringa Tanzania!
