“Orphans Africa envisions a day when all the schools operate independently and when all of the students, non-orphans and orphans alike, graduate with a quality education and a promising future.” Carl Gann – Founder and President
OA addresses the unique challenges of orphans in Tanzania. Getting an education gives these children opportunities for jobs and careers and pulls them out of poverty. The educational system in Tanzania fails when compared to the urgent need. Children, particularly orphans, simply don’t get enough education for a variety of reasons, almost all of them related to extreme poverty. Making quality education available for ALL students is a great success.
The work we do makes an impact on many levels. Boys and girls who go to school are protected from dangers such as child trafficking, early marriage, violence and assault. Our health education and health insurance help keep the children healthy from disease. Providing nutritious meals eliminates malnutrition, and sickness. Education empowers these children to get jobs and careers. It breaks the cycle of poverty. These children have hope and opportunities to be able to support their families and contribute to the Tanzania economy.
