It costs less than £1 a day to send a child to secondary school for a whole year whilst also meeting all their food, uniform, book and basic medical costs.
One of our main areas of focus is to support and expand educational opportunities for disabled children, including improvements to learning facilities.
Friends of the Children of Tanzania was established in 2007 in the UK to provide education, social and medical care and support to orphans, vulnerable and disabled children and their carers, in the Lake Victoria region of North West Tanzania in East Africa.
Our aim is to improve the health, education and quality of life of disadvantaged children to help them reach their full potential.

As a result of our biggest fundraiser to date, these children are having vital operations funded by FoCT in the coming months. Our money covers the cost of the operation and hospital charges, travelling expenses to and from the hospital, food, board and lodging for both the patient and their carer.
