The Tan-Kids Foundation helps children in Tanzania to have a happy and healthy childhood.
It has our preference that children grow up in a family.
We work on these goals by cooperating with local organisations in Tanzania who give support and provide education for poor and underprivileged children.
What do these kids need?
The same things that every child, in any part of the world, needs! A loving family, positive attention, nutritious food, education, medical care, clothing, and to have a lot of fun!
How do we give them what they need?
* By helping their parents/providers raise an income.
* Through psychosocial family support.
* By financial sponsoring of school fees, healthy meals and medical care.
* By providing professional training about the social and emotional development of children. Teachers and caretakers will be trained in new and creative ways, to help children who are struggling with behavioural problems.
In short, we support our partner organisations, by thinking along and working along, by raising funds, and through training.

The board and the volunteers of the Tan-Kids Foundation, offer their time and talents on a voluntarily basis. They don’t receive payment for their efforts. This way, all money goes to the children in need!
