The Yes We Can Organization supports the poor and vulnerable children in Kigoma, Tanzania. We offer children a better life by taking them off the streets, providing for their basic needs, and giving them an education. In addition to the orphanage, we also operate a kindergarten where poor families in the community can bring their children and give them an opportunity for education.

We are currently operating in a temporary rented facility, but the needs of the community far surpass what we are able to provide at this time. With the purchase of land and the building of a new facility, we will have more stability and be able to expand and help more children.

Our orphanage currently houses 12 children, however several of the children living in the home also have siblings that still need help. A larger facility would allow us to keep siblings together and also get more children off the street.

In addition to the orphanage, we operate a kindergarten for children in the community to respond to the lack of quality education in the area. We believe that by providing education and fostering a love of learning, we can provide opportunities and help lift families out of poverty. We have many ideas on how to expand and serve the community further, including a vocational training center and support for children with disabilities.

This planned expansion would be done in phases as listed below:

Phase 1 - Purchase of land

Phase 2 - Construction of residential and school facilities

Phase 3 - Finishing and furnishing facilities

Your contribution would go towards the purchase of land and the building of new facilities. With your support we will be able to greatly improve the lives of more children in the community. Having their basic needs met, the children are free to laugh, play and dream of their future, just as each child should have the ability to do.
