To make a life changing difference to poor and vulnerable children living in Zanzibar, striving to meet their physical, educational, spiritual and social needs, to help them reach their full potential and become educated, independent young adults who know their self-worth.
Our aim is to start small and build from there. We want to begin by addressing the physical need of food by starting a Saturday Feeding project, initially for 40-60 of the most vulnerable children, rising to 100 kids in the Jambiani area.
To begin with we will rely upon a small group of volunteers, led by Clalence to identify the most needy children, and to deliver the Saturday Club.
As well as the provision of food, the Saturday Club will also begin to meet the social needs of children by providing group activities such as acrobatics and street dancing.
Clalence was the very first child FISCH helped in Iringa in 2007! He lived on and off the streets for many years, but thanks in part to the love and help he received from FISCH, he not only survived but became a man with a heart for helping others in need. In the past few years Clalence set up Move Zanzibar, a small group of volunteers with a heart to move, educate and motivate the young generation of Zanzibar.
In January 2022 we joined hands formally with Clalence to launch a Saturday feeding project, to help them take the first steps on a journey which we hope will make a life changing difference for some the most vulnerable children in Zanzibar.
They are now continuing with this independently and you can read more about Move Zanzibar at https://www.movezanzibar.org/
