In the summer of 2012, I was one of the lucky travellers who climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and enjoyed the beauty of the landscape. While in Tanzania, my journey evolved from tourist to volunteer. This transformation occurred as I witnessed the poverty, lack of medical care, poor nutrition and low life expectancy. I vowed to do the best I can to help the children in this country, even if I only change one child's life.

Some children are abandoned living in dumpsites. There is a high percentage of orphans that don't have placement in orphanages. These children can't afford medicine, school uniforms, shoes, or school text books. The minimum cost of enrolling a child in school is $250/year; not a possible task for most of the families in cases where there is only one parent raising many children. If the parent is a woman, she most likely is illiterate and unemployed.

Through my fundraising efforts in Canada, I have raised $4,200USD. In 2013, I returned to Tanzania and I personally delivered 800 school text books and school supplies to 10 local schools in the district of Same, Tanzania.

I'm returning to Tanzania in the spring of 2015. The fundraising goal is $10,000. The plan is to organize events, garage sales, approach businesses and churches for donations. All the money raised will go directly to benefit the poor children of Tanzania, and no part of this money will be used towards administrative costs.

We are in a process of registering a non-profit charity called Can-Zania Educate-Inc. We believe that your support will provide a meaningful difference for many poor children.

We hope that you will make a contribution to this worthy endeavour. Your donation can be made at Royal Bank account # 5063144 transit #05582 to Jolanta Bogusz or through http://www.gofundme.com/b5jbl8.


Thank you,
