OUR DEPARTMENTS-Vulnerable Children Support

KIWAKKUKI has been supporting MVC’s since 1996 and this long-time support has enabled us to be able to observe the MVC’s progress over time. What we have seen is that these children’s ability to access vocational education, health education, preparatory primary and secondary education has improved the overall quality of their lives.  In addition, because we have been able to support their living situations through building homes for them and their families, both the community involved with them and the child has benefited.  The difference between the supported MVC and those who are not supported is profound.  It is well known that Tanzania’s educational system is lacking and many MVCs are not able to access secondary school, or to have extra support in knowledge of health, living or life skills. Out of those supported we have teachers, clinical officers, carpenters, electricians priests even some are in the counties Armed Forces, Police amongst others.  One cannot even contemplate what would have happened to these helpless children had the unenviable happened. There are many components to the level of service that MVC Program provides, but one concrete project that can last for generations is the construction of small solid houses for orphans.  KIWAKKUKI learned of the importance of building these houses during the late 1990’s (1996) when Child Foundation of The Netherlands began assisting a desperate family.
