The Matunda fund is our general giving account which supports various areas of the school and orphanage. This could be anything from a donation towards clothing, to money for building and decorative work. Perhaps you would even consider sponsoring a teacher? Our teachers are dedicated to the project and work for less than half the government wage. We desperately want to change this.
Through donating to the Matunda fund you will be providing essential support for so many areas of our project and the children’s welfare. You may have a specific idea in mind which is great! Alternatively, why not take a look at our wish list for ideas on how to help. Tanzania is an incredibly expensive country in which to live and many items quickly become ‘luxury’ due to foreign importation. Please take a look at the following things which have been made possible only through kind and generous donations to the Matunda fund. Matunda in Swahili means ‘fruit’ by the way… Kaaya’s grandfather’s name – the late tribal chief of the community. This fund is dedicated to this memory.
The following are just a few of the wonderful items we have been able to purchase through donations to the Matunda fund. There are many more which we cannot fit within this page but we will ensure that every donation receives a personal thanks and picture of the recipient or finished product.
If you are interested in donating towards this fund please contact the project Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
