Seed of Wisdom is a nonprofit day care center located in Moshi, Tanzania. We provide year-round early education, social skills, and three nourishing meals in a safe and caring environment for local preschoolers in Kimochi Ward, a rural area of Moshi District near Mt. Kilimanjaro. We currently serve 26 children, ages 1 to 5. The center opened its doors in June 2019 and immediately filled to capacity, demonstrating the real need for qualified day care in our area.

We believe that all children should have a good start in life and a safe and caring environment, so we are open to all regardless of their ability to pay. Our fee to attend is low or free.
Our fundraising needs
Your donation matters!
As an NGO our only real financial support is through private donations. Even a modest sum can go a very long way toward helping Seed of Wisdom achieve our various goals:
Operations
Our ongoing need is to secure funds for daily operations: staff and teacher salaries, good nutrition, utilities, supplies, and, for the time being, rent.
Building a new, modern center
The center is currently housed in a rented building that is old, overcrowded and inadequate for our needs. The burden of a relatively high monthly rent drains our ability to fund the center itself. Our goal now is to build a new center on private land that has already been donated for this purpose. The land is in a safe neighborhood surrounded by local farms and caring neighbors. It is closer to public transportation, has access to pre-existing cooking facilities, ample room for playing outdoors, and is healthier overall. We can build a spacious, modern, day care center for under 9,000 U.S. Dollars (TZS 20,700,000). Our goal is to begin construction in October 2023. With full funding in place, we can complete the new center this year and welcome our children beginning in early 2024.
A copy of our building project budget is available for review upon request.
Salaries
We would like to provide a living wage to all our staff, who are low paid, caring, and dedicated workers, truly devoted to nurturing the children of our community. Currently we have one qualified teacher, one teaching assistant, one cook, and of course the administrator, who donates her time and resources. We would like to add a second qualified teacher as well, as more children continue to show up at our door..
