Tabora League for Children (TLC)

Charity and Not-for-Profit

About Us

TLC supports 150 orphaned and vulnerable children, from pre-school to university level, in Tabora, a large city in Tanzania. We have 3 Day Centres where the children come for nourishing meals, healthcare, additional tuition, a safe place to play and all round tlc. All our children are sponsored and all are given school uniforms and supplies so they can go to school. Two years ago we had our first university graduate and since then we have another 5 uni students plus others at college, in apprenticeships or taking vocational courses. Some are now in work. TLC does all it can, supported by sponsors and donors, to enable all our children to have the maximum opportunity to fulfil their potential and free themselves from poverty.

TLC is a UK registered charity entirely led by volunteers. All donations go to Tabora to help the children. Our trustees and volunteers regularly go there.

Why we're raising money

We're hoping to raise additional funds to cover all the costs not covered by sponsorship. These include:
Bikes for our seniors to get to and from home, school, Centres;
Sanitary products;
Bed wetting sheets;
Beds as an anchor for mosquito nets and to ensure children are not sleeping on the floor;
Footballs and other sport and arts equipment;
Additional child support for those who have a single sick guardian;
Funding to secure local volunteers who not only give a lot but also gain a lot;
Help for local financing costs like audits.
Every year we fundraise for mosquito nets, water filters and also solar lamps that make homework possible for students in a home with no electricity.
We also fundraise for Eid and Christmas celebrations that all can enjoy, regardless of their faith, that help cement social cohesion and bring a little fun and joy into the lives of our children.
