Through all our projects in Tanzania we are committed to defend the Human Rights, especially the rights of children.
In Endulen the deaf Masai children learn the sign language and through school education they can emancipate, in stead of staying at home where these children are mostly mistreated because of their handicap.
At the MTC DOGODOGO street children are protected and rehabilitated into a normal life. a profession During their stay of 2 years at the center they learn a profession and can build themselves a better future. Younger children are sent to school outside the center, except for the nursery class, 10 children, who can go to nursery class within the center.
At SUMA, Engikaret we want to protect girls of 13-15 years from early marriage and pregnancy through education in a secondary boarding school.
We propose also a program to ‘make a donation as a gift’, a charitable act towards these marginalized children, if you are looking for an idea what to offer for an anniversary, wedding, baptism or funeral.
Construction of a primary boarding school in Endulen
Construction of a special primary boarding school for deaf children in Endulen, Ngorongoro in Tanzania. The total cost of this project amounts to 261.000 US$ or 247.860 Euros. The construction phase has been started in 2016; the teaching of the sign language started for the first 17 children in January 2017. In January 2023 there are more than 300 children at the school, 248 of them boarding and 48 of these children are deaf and 17 have a hearing problem. The campus consists of 9 classrooms, a dining hall including kitchen and store (for 400 students), two dormitories (each for 90 children) and a toilet building.
The solar energy system is working to provide the campus with electricity, and cooking is done by biogaz.
For the time being the construction is not possible as transport of construction materials within the Conservation Area is prohibited. Your donations for this purpose are now used to buy learning tablets for the deaf unit as well as to finance the school fees for the deaf children.

Support of education for marginalized children by paying their school fees
We support education of marginalized children in Tanzania at three locations:
The deaf Masaï children at the school St Luke in Endulen, Ngorongoro. The parents abandon their handicapped child at the school without contribution for costs. At the school these children are protected while boarding, they are given an education and later they are able to emancipate in their life. The school fees to be paid at St Luke are 600 € per year and per child.
The orphans and other young children who need protection at the Daniel Brottier – DOGODOGO centre in Bunju, Dar-es-Salaam. For the moment the very young children can attend the nursery class in the Daniel Brottier Kindergarten within the DOGODOGO centre, the children coming from outside pay school fees and these fees cover the salary of the maitresse. 28 children attend the primary school (in Tanzania the school system is as the English one, from 7 years old a child starts the primary school for 7 years, and then 4 + 2 years of secondary school). 16 children go to secondary school. The school fees are 320 € in the primary school and 480 € in the secondary school per year and per child.
For the Masaï girls in the secondary boarding school to avoid early mariages and childbirths. We can recommend support for 5 Masaï girls to attend the secondary boarding school SUMA in Engikaret. The school fees there are 900 € per year and per girl.
