‘I have a dream of owning my own tailor shop when I go back to Mwakitolyo….I will open my own tailoring shop and employ other people, especially young girls - who are currently involved in different small and dangerous activities - to work in my shop.’
Mwamvua Ramadhani, vocational training student, June 2018
With your support, you can give a child, working in a gold mine, a better future and life. Your donation is fully and directly used to make these children become independent and to live in a safer and healthier environment for a better future.
Donation Programme 2018/19
The current donations will be implemented for children (13-17 years old) working in gold mines near Kahama, Tanzania, to have a one-year vocational training at Buhangija Focal Development College from January - December 2019. They can chose a profession that is locally needed (such as tailor, electrician, mechanic, bricklayer) and that enables them to sustain and live under better conditions instead of being exposed to the extremely poor, exploitative, dangerous and unheathy life in the gold mines.
The donations will go fully and directly to the children’s needs, including: school fees, uniforms, school material and/or start up tools (f.ex. sewing machine), food and accommodation during their stay at the College. This is monitored and coordinated locally by the NGO Rafiki SDO (see Collaborations).
