Projects

HOME PROJECT

Malaika welcomes children and teenagers in the house based at Moshono village (Arusha), where the staff constantly takes care of their well-being and their growth with love, as in a real family.

School is the solution to develop the potential of our children, is the way to lift young people and their country out of poverty. Education opens a world of opportunity in a child’s life.

'BACK TO FAMILY' PROJECT
