Watoto 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 Over the past two years many of our children have returned to their communities and have been replaced by other children.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.
