Ndoto Yango community and education centre in Tanzania

Requested by

Hope for Community Development and Consultancy Organisation (HOCODECO)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Ndoto Yangu Community Center (NYCC) believes that every human being has got his/her own dream that he would like to accomplish. NYCC wants to eradicate the extreme poverty by creating a learning center where by poor and marginalized children and youths of Kitomonto Ward will use it to gain vocational training skills for them to be able to secure their future employment.

Most of those children and youths are poor and orphans while others are the victim of extreme poverty which is facing their parents.

NYCC will provide educational resources like libraries which expects to have different reference materials for their studies. The Center will also posses professional trainers and facilitators from inside and out side the country who will work as part time and voluntary basis

NYCC will provide inter cultural exchange where we have received many request from abroad students who would like to do internship and summer training.

NYCC expectation is to create employment to coastal children and youths who are alarming at the street after completing their primary schools and secondary school without knowing what to do and eventually forced to get involved in evil activities like drug abuses, HIV/AIDS.

NYCC will also provide meeting places for community development activities. for example Educating people like family planning,education for combating diseases and environment conservation.

What is your project and how will it help?

The project will be operating in Mkuranga districts (Pwani Region)-TANZANIA.

Ndoto Yangu means My Dream. NYCC is a new project aims at creating conducive and sustainable learning environment to children and youths of Kitomondo ward in Mkuranga Districts. However, NYCC will be able to accommodate different people (children and youths)from other wards in Mkuranga districts as well as anyone from any part of Tanzania.

Girls who fails exams are forced to early marriage and others used to go to the nearby cities like Kibaha, Chalinze and Dar es salaam to seek cheap labor like to be house maids while boys found themselves doing hard works (spending the whole day cutting trees for the charcoal) but due to lack of education and skills both girls and boys eventually encountered themselves in evil and dangerous activities like prostitution, drugs, or becoming thieves.

Due to the extreme poverty parents do not afford to take their children to further education or help them to secure any vocational training skills that can strongly help them to either employ themselves or be employed.

• Free meeting and studying place for children and youths
