ABOUT THE TANZANIAN CHILDREN'S FUND
At TCF, we believe in a brighter future. We not only provide a permanent, loving home for vulnerable children in Northern Tanzania, but are also dedicated to improving education, increasing access to health care, and creating economic opportunities for our entire community in order to create lasting and positive change.
HOW WE ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION
The Tanzanian Children’s Fund works to ensure that all children and families in the Karatu region of northern Tanzania lead healthy and productive lives and have the opportunity to become positive agents of change for their country. In order to achieve our goals, TCF provides a loving and permanent home for 97 marginalized children at the Rift Valley Children’s Village. However, TCF also recognizes that the best way to promote the well-being of all children is to provide access to high-quality education, free healthcare, and microfinance trainings and loans to the entire community. Our innovative, multi-pronged approach to addressing systemic poverty is what has enabled us to have a deep impact and catalyze real and lasting change.
After climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and falling in love with the country and its people, in 1998 India Howell moved permanently to Tanzania to manage a lodge for a safari company. Noticing the growing problem of orphaned and marginalized children living in poverty, India felt compelled to take action, and in 2004 she partnered with Peter Leon Mmassy to create a loving and permanent home for 17 orphaned children. With the help of our supporters and the Tanzanian community, that single house has expanded to become a Children’s Village for 97 children and a thriving community-based organization providing free healthcare, primary and secondary education, and microfinance loans and training to the residents of Oldeani Ward.
