Educating and Empowering vulnerable Tanzanian children and youth, improving their lives and instilling hope for a better future, in collaboration with local community initiatives.
We are working in conjunction with the support of the local community members & local government to operate the Manyara Holistic Centre (MAHOCE) which was formed in February 2007. MAHOCE currently provides free non-formal education classes to children in the community.
These children, because of impoverished circumstances, are unable to enter the formal education system. Others have failed the national exam or dropped out of school.
MAHOCE also runs a youth hostel that currently provides housing and full board services to 33 boys & girls. Through the support of the Harambee Foundation, we are able to provide an education for 84 children.
Our Exciting Project C.H.E.A.R. is in the Works!

Alpha Delta Kappa is an international honorary organization of women educators. Every two years chapters may submit applications to receive this generous grant. The committee members select the top three proposals and a vote is taken by the entire membership.
Over the next two years, Alpha Delta Kappa Chapters (ADK) will be raising $50,000 to support this project. It will be presented to Joshua Johnston at ADK's International Convention in July 2023. The money will be used to build dormitories, classrooms, a library/media center, a kitchen, and offices. There will be an area for gardening and fruit trees. The adjacent property will make a great play area. We have just under an acre of land on which to complete this project.
