TST believes in building and supporting happy families, in all their various shapes and forms. We create sustainable, participatory and evolving care plans for orphaned and vulnerable children and families in the Meru district of Tanzania. Working with the community, we aim to empower our clients and bringing together small acts from around the world to create big change.
In the last 12 months alone, TST has provided family-style residential care for 43 orphaned children, kept more than 50 children in 22 loving families through outreach support, reunited 4 children with relatives, and created 50 jobs in the community, in addition to employing many young men through HFCV construction. Of our residential kids, more than 1/3 have an active reunification plan!
Sponsor a child monthly, and develop a relationship that can last a lifetime. Give them a future for less than the cost of a daily cup of coffee! Or sponsor a family with a one-time donation, and help them become self-sufficient and stay together.
Volunteer with us in Tanzania, and have a life changing experience - with confidence that every penny is being put towards your stay or the welfare of the children.
Every dollar goes farther than you can imagine, here on the ground. 100% of donations through the website go directly to our programs, not to administration!

Pendo is a sweet, confident, and very energetic little girl, who lost her mother shortly after the birth of her younger half sister, Zawadi. She has recently moved into the Children's Village and couldn't be more thrilled - although we wish she'd use her inside voice to tell us about it! Her name means love in Swahili, which fits her perfectly, as her favorite activities are cuddling and laughing with her friends. She is a fantastic dancer, loves school, and is always at the top of her class. She has an uncle and grandmother who are involved in her life and who she visits over breaks. Sponsor Pendo today to get to know this smart girl!Sponsor
