Friends of Tanzanian Orphans are a group of volunteers who support the Olasiti Orphans Center (OOC) by raising funds and providing organizational support for the OOC staff.
Since 2005, Friends of Tanzanian Orphans have reached their objectives of providing a meal each day to drop-in children, establishing a community garden as a source of food, providing education for orphans, and starting sustainable small-scale businesses. Starting from Zenan's porch, they now have constructed a building with bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, and classroom.
The Olasiti Orphans Center is providing a meal and after-school tutoring for primary and secondary students, as well as health education for teens and adults. All students receive educational support for shoes, uniforms, and supplies such as pens and notebooks. Secondary students receive scholarships provided by their donors.
