Volunteer with Children, Tanzania

£95.00

 

Medi Trip has teamed up with Mwanga Children's Foundation to give hope and a fighting chance to some of the most disadvantaged children in Arusha. The children are all pre-Primary school age and come to Mwanga for the special care and basic education needed for a good start to their future. 

Many of the children have special needs, disabilities and require physiotherapy, need additional psychological care and special education. 

These are exceptionally bright and engaged children who have the support of passionate and hardworking staff fighting for their futures. But there is so much more to be done. The centre is in need of full refurbishment and stimulating and educational toys and equipment is needed to progress these children. Much deserved funds are desperately needed to help Mwanga progress and reach it's full potential. Message us for more info on how you can make a financial contribution.
