Project Details

The program aims to Educate Children with Caregivers and Teach at schools. The volunteers would know Child's Rights, Health, Nutrition, Life Skills, English and Science.

Who we are ?

We are the members of an organization  called Oblige for Vulnerable Children Tanzania (OVCT), it is made up of about 15 members who voluntary have organized themselves and decide to  support and educate  children. Membership in OVCT organization is regardless gender. Being an OVCT member, is something that every member from his /her hearty felt says that it builds confidence and joy while serving the  children with their caregivers around the villages starting from Puma (a small town where the OVCT Head quarter is) to the other villages in Tanzania by educating or training them.

What we do ?

OVCT organization members are open handed to receive volunteers with Health, Nutrition, Human Rights (Child's Rights), Life Skills, Teaching and Community Welfare professional or qualification and experience to work with the organization team. Focusing in training the  children with their caregivers about Health and Nutrition, Child's Rights and Life Skills the volunteers will have their duty to share their professionals, experiences, qualifications with the  children and their caregivers around the villages by teaching and educating the children with the caregivers.

Along with this, OVCT sensitizes the community to be aware and care for these kind of children in making sure that they get their rights equal like the other children such as shelter, food, education, respect and security.

Where we work ? 

Our working legal area is in Tanzania Mainland (in Kiswahil-- Tanzania Bara). Our Head Quarters are in a small town called Puma; Puma is in Ikungi District, in Singida region and in the Country of Tanzania. The volunteers accommodation house is in Puma (a small town), the small town is along the main tarmac road  which is the major road from Dar es Salaam city to Dodoma (the capital of Tanzania), to Singida region, to Mwanza region, and up to Mara region.

Puma is a nice small town furnished with delicious food products such as pawpaws, onions, sugarcane, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, sorghum, millet, maize, sunflower and cabbages. The availability of vegetarian food is one hundred percent for the volunteers to enjoy. The facilities like transport, electricity, water and community unity in Puma is not a problem; the volunteers will enjoy interacting with different community people so that they can learn local cultures and customs.

The volunteers programs will be visiting many of the villages which are close and far from the main tarmac road while accompanying with the organization team members. 

There is a lot of safety here at Puma and the Health requirements are available. We have a "Queen of Universe" Hospital which is near to the accommodation house where the volunteers will be staying. We have also Dispensary in Puma, shops, a market and a business market on every Friday and Sunday (here the volunteers can buy different needs and materials they want). Banks are in a capital town of Singida region which is Singida town; and it is not far from Puma(a small town). The volunteers would also enjoy visiting Singida town and see different kinds of facilities and things where also the main roads of the country are joined. Singida town is the  core center of the country. So, it is easier to travel wherever in the country by using motor vehicles. All the roads to other regions, major towns and cities from Singida, are tarmac roads .

What we have done so far?

OVCT has worked in more than 32 villages and able to identify children and cater for them. OVCT has identified 1700 children  in 32 villages. OVCT has in its best level of working, provide these kind of children with school materials, food, soap, clothes and shoes where they are in the villages. Many of the children who were not able to attend schools in case of lacking school materials, attended schools after being facilitated with school materials.

Many children who were stigmatized, discriminated by their caregivers; they were set free by their caregivers to be educated about Child's Rights and give the children their basic needs such as nutritious food, shelter, clothes and send them to school.

Also OVCT has cause many of the children to survive hunger by giving them food; their health was improved by using hygiene soap, wash their clothes by using soap for washing clothes, use toilets instead of using the house surrounding environment as toilet places.

Our focus is on the  children in Tanzania with the population of about 50 Million people, and almost many of them are children. We have started to help from the beginning point  on the place  where we live and where the Head quarters of the organization are on wards.
