Kisongo Center Children

Sponsor a Child Today

Walk In Love is an active supporter of Tanzania moving from a country dependent upon aid to being a country that is able to support it’s own children. This is a fundamental framework shift that is vital to the dignity of the people of Tanzania. Your donation goes to subsidize the overall cost of providing affordable daycare to vulnerable families in the Arusha community. It is our belief that daycare is a innovative, necessary resource that supports parents in providing for their own family. By joining us in this work you are strengthening the family unit which in turn allows our community to thrive.

Each family contributes 30,000 TSH for their child to attend daycare. This is about 50 cents per day. With a sponsorship of $30 per month, you are allowing us to provide high quality, low cost childcare to the at-risk families in our area.
