We have set ourselves the task of helping the poorest of the poor. To this end, we currently run four orphanages and a school in Mwandege, about an hour and a half outside Dar es Salaam.
A further orphanage and our new Montessori kindergarden are being built and will hopefully be finished soon.
With the accommodation of children in one of our orphanages, the way to a better future is paved for them; they receive a safe home and with this a loving upbringing with their peers. Additionally a good diet and medical care are guaranteed, and furthermore the children are given the best possible education, which allows them a good start into working life.
We take our orphans by the hand and lead them through all the important stages of life, step by step.
Here, Streetkids International e.V. only takes in children where it is ensured they are completely orphaned and their guardians are no longer in a position to adequately take care of the children.
Our aim is to build capacities where it is most urgently needed. Through the accommodation in our orphanages, we enable children and young people to live their childhood and youth in security, with an education until they are released to live independent lives.
The orphans should grow up to become autonomous, responsible and mature citizens of Tanzania, who as adults can make their own contribution to society.
We have not yet reached our goal: At present on our land acquired in 2013 we are building another orphanage as well as a Montessori kindergarden, in order to give even more children the opportunity to grow up in security, play, run around and to be able to develop.
In order to be able to achieve all this, we are reliant on people who support us. We are looking for these every single day.
For this we are looking for individuals, companies, freelancers and self-employed workers who accept their international social responsibility and would like to support a project long term, that builds sustainable and future-oriented capacity building – either through donation or by becoming a sponsor.

You can of course also make your own mind up about what Streetkids International e.V. does and be convinced of the immediacy and sustainability of our work! There are various different options
