The Orphanages

When we started working with orphans in Tanzania, we rented orphanages in certain parts of Dar es Salaam, the seat of government of the East African state. It quickly became clear that we could not operate the orphanages like this in a way that we deemed meaningful and effective. Therefore we decided to buy our own plot of land in Mwandege, about an hour and a half outside of Dar es Salaam, and build an orphanage there ourselves.

The first orphanage built by Streetkids International was a mixed house for boys and girls. Following that was the orphanage for boys, the boys’ house; the first orphanage became today’s girls’ house. In 2012 a further orphanage was built, which now houses our youngest children.

Due to the growing number of orphans, there was no longer enough space on this land, and so in 2013 we bought an adjacent plot of 16000 square metres.

There we will have two further orphanages and a Montessori nursery in the second half of 2015.

    Living together is unbelievably important for the orphans. A regular day-to-day life, consistent diet and hygiene are essential.
