Watoto Kicheko babyWatoto Kicheko Children's Center has been set up in Arusha, Tanzania to help local children who have special needs that cannot adequately be met in their communities. The Watoto Kicheko Children's Center provides a haven for Tanzanian children by working closely with the local authority and local communities.

We provide schooling, healthcare, a caring home life, love and security for these most vulnerable of children. Over the past two years many of our children have returned to their communities and have been replaced by other children.

The vision of Watoto Kicheko for the children who will reside with us is to provide for them a fun and loving home life in which they can learn to take care of themselves. Some will only be with us for a short time. But others will be with us for much or all of their childhood. Some may require training after they have finished school and some others may wish to go to university.

From birth till adulthood.

Watoto Kicheko's mission is to run an orphanage for 14 abandoned and at-risk children, from birth to 18 years. We will provide housing, food and education, including third level education, for all of the children in our care. Watoto Kicheko works actively with local authorities, the social welfare office and communities to return children back to their families whenever feasible. We provide some support for families in the community, when required. The Center will encourage and support fostering and adoption of the children by suitable families.
