Kisongo Center

Welcome to the Kisongo Center

This daycare opened on January 15, 2018, in the area of Kisongo (Kee-song-O), a village on the outskirts of Arusha, Tanzania. The Kisongo Center has 35 children enrolled. Of these children: 23 come from single-parent homes, 4 are children of our employees, and 8 children come from severely impoverished families.

Since opening, we have already heard many stories of how the center is changing the lives. One child who is 2 years old was on the cusp of being taken to live far away from his mother in a village so that she would be able to work. Now the child is able to come to the center and continue living at home with his mother. Another set of siblings was staying alone while the mother went to sell clothes. The four-year-old sister was caring for the 10-month-old brother for 10+ hours per day. A three-year-old boy was staying with an abusive family member while his mother was working as a cleaner. Now, all of these children are in a safe, supportive environment. Because of our center, many of the single mothers have reported finding jobs and are excited about being able to support their family.
The simple resource of daycare helps families thrive.
