About this project

Fonelisco is an orphanage in Mwanza, Tanzania. About 60 street children and orphans are being taken care of. The organisation was established in 1997 by the Tanzanian Joseph Elias, who is now running the organisation as a director together with local staff. They provide the kids with shelter, food, medical care and education.

Who are we?
We are the directing team of the German partner association Fonelisco e.V. which supports FONELISCO financially and by providing counsel. We have all been living in Tanzania for a certain time working for FONELISCO. Now, back in Germany, we want to support Joseph in his mission providing a loving home to orphans and street children. We do this work on a voluntary basis during our studies.

What is your donation going to be used for?
Development aid can only be useful if it is sustainable. The key for sustainability within the work with children and juveniles is education. We want to do our part to provide access to education for the children of FONELISCO. This campaign mainly aims on our youngest and oldest: We wish to finance the primary school fees for our children for the next school year which starts in January. Moreover, we want to offer two of our older kids the chance to study at a university/ college,This will enable them to take up a profession which will guide them into an independent life.

These things cost a lot of money, please check the "donation needs" on this page for the exact amount. We are convinced that every donation - however small it may be -  can make a big difference. On top, this campaign offers a great chance for a sustainable development for our project!

We wish all of you a merry christmas time and thank you for your support!
