Our Project Focuses


Education is the most powerful tool for empowering and inspiring children. Knowledge is all around us – when we are inspired we can see and absorb it anywhere, when we are creative we are open and prepared to seek solutions to the unsolvable problems and develop ourselves and our communities, when we are compassionate we can relate and communicate peacefully seeing our common humanity and building strong relationships.


We also believe that our children our next generation and it is through this belief that we work to ensure that children are not constrained by poverty but are free and able to have healthy and happy futures. The most vulnerable in a society are often those who are orphaned or are made vulnerable by family breakdown, poverty or abuse. We work to ensure that children are able to grow in families, working on family preservation and reunification. This action-orientated approach includes mentorship opportunities and entrepreneurship promotion.


We are working with a number of women to develop their skills as tailors to provide them with a steady income. We aim to work with the female caregivers of the most vulnerable children to create economically empowered households. The products that are made by the women’s groups are sold in Tanzania and in the rest of the world to raise funds for Pamoja Leo as well as providing a jobs with regular incomes to allow families to plan for the future and care for their children.
