Pre-school in Kigera Etuma. Tanzania

Boze Narodzenie 2012 Tanzania. Adopcja Serca_15

From our mission in Tanzania we have just found out about how tragic the conditions in which children live and spend their free time are. We have decided to help them and soon we will run the project “Pre-school in Kigera Etuma”. We are looking for companies and individuals who care about these children and who can support us in our activities to improve children’s existence and safety. We would like to provide them one meal per day under the supplementary feeding program ran in pre-school, whereas right now most of the children do not have even one meal per day. This pre-school will serve thirty children from both the mission institution help center and the village.

In fact there is a room that may be used as a pre-school but it needs thorough repair for it to be safe for children. The pre-school urgently needs this essential work and basic equipment elements financed. This project has been divided into three stages:

  • Repair work in the rooms,
  • Institution equipment,
  • Construction of the fence that will separate pre-school, the children of the institution and the village – from the helping center whose residents are mentally ill.

The cost of each of the stages is between 6500 and 8000 PLN (about $2100 to $2550, or £1360 to £1670, or €1585 to €1950). Companies that would like to support this project financially or to equip the pre-school with all the useful objects and accessories needed please contact us at:

We have also run a public collection for this purpose, accordingly to the decision of Administration and Digitization Ministry, decision number 12/2013.

To help children from the pre-school you can also donate now via PayPal:


This money will be used for repair work of the pre-school’s rooms and its equipment and for other urgent purposes, such as:

  • supplementary feeding for children, i.e. meals and drinks for children,
  • teaching, buying school accessories and aids, buying school uniforms, shoes, food, mosquito-nets, blankets, mattresses and hygiene accessories,
  • medical treatment, medical interventions and medical prevention.

However, photos of the pre-school rooms do not reflect the current reality. Since January 2013, the pre-school has been attended by thirty children for whom it has provided care, at least one hot meal per day, drinks, vitamins and medical treatment.

Every day children get a nshima (the corn grits) but for Christmas we have managed to buy some rice and meat for the children.

The pre-school is attended by children of the Adoption of Heart program, however some children are still waiting for their Parents. The help for those children needs to be financed by the Parent. This help can only temporarily be financed by other means.

Here you can watch sister Rut, a missionary, children’s guardian and pre-school initiator talking about her pre-school (in Polish):
