ChildCARE Plus in Tanzania

ChildCARE Plus in Tanzania

Anna Rowsell, a PAOC Global Worker, oversees the Tanzanian CCP program.  Children in the program are either residing with their families or other caregivers in communities across the country. In total, there are over 480 children who are sponsored. Some of the sponsored children are living at the Village of Hope Mwanza.

Through a $41 monthly donation, a child can attend school, have access to nutritious food and healthcare and be spiritually nurtured by our on-the-ground ChildCARE Plus community representatives.
