About Songea's Kids
Caring for at-risk orphaned and vulnerable children

Our organization's work is in the remote East African community of Songea. The town is in the much under-served southern region of Tanzania; characterized by subsistence farming and low incomes. The effects of AIDS and malaria have overwhelmed the nuclear family and extended family systems leaving thousands of children orphaned or at-risk.
Meeting the basic needs of 65 children and counting

With the help of local partners and our US child sponsors we are providing the children's basic needs of shelter, food and water, clothing, bedding and mosquito nets, basic medical care, education and the means to transport themselves to school and more. Please consider sponsoring a child.

Goal of improving the community-based care system

Working in Songea's poor Mshangano Ward, we improve community-based care with consistent and effective monitoring, counseling services, tutoring, mentoring for children and adults, and providing recreational activities.
