The Mbinga Children's Organization (MCO) was established in 2002 with the goal of providing education, housing, food, as well as a caring environment for children of poverty in the Mbinga District of Tanzania. MCO’s purpose is to offer an opportunity for these children to receive the education and attention they need in order to increase self-sufficiency and live fuller lives within their community.
A good quality education is one that provides all learners with capabilities they require to become economically productive, develop sustainable livelihoods, contribute to peaceful and democratic societies and enhance individual well-being.
We provide Special care for Children... Special Child Care Benefit can help where there is:a child at risk of serious abuse or neglect, or a family with an exceptional case of short term financial hardship which has substantially reduced their capacity to pay child care fees.
These are necesary needs, basic needs like Shelter, Food & Clothing
The estimated number of children orphaned or without parental care due to HIV/AIDS in the Mbinga district is 600. This number does not include the homeless children on the streets.
The Mbinga Children's organization recognizes this issue in Tanzania and has built Twiga Cares For You, a 20-acre campus which provides a caring environment for 100 children by offering education, attention, shelter, food, and school supplies. Our staff of teachers and cooks are committed and compassionate individuals, who volunteer their time even if they may be struggling financially themselves. The organization owns a 15-acre farm were crops are grown for the children's meals. School uniforms, shoes, and books are also supplied. We provide homes for the children by finding volunteers who take in students and have also built a dormitory, which houses children on the campus.
The Mbinga Children’s Organization currently is raising funds for:
- additional construction to complete school
(i.e. library, more dormitories, kitchen on campus)
- teacher housing and salaries
- electricity/solar power
- various supplies and equipment
These additions will assist the school to expand and help more children in the Mbinga district and provide a full functioning facility that fulfills the educational, emotional, and physical needs to children born without these privileges.
