The people of Luguru have high levels of illiteracy as families struggle to work their small plot of land for income. As result children are malnourished and unable to attend school due to sickness. We’re working to treat and prevent malnutrition so children can have the best start in life. We’re also creating savings groups to improve household income that also support parents to learn how to read and write.

We have already achieved great things in Luguru community in education by ensuring children have schools nearby that are safe to learn in and have equipment to help them learn. 

We’re working with the people of Luguru to build a community where children thrive.

In the first five years of our partnership with Luguru we’re working closely with leaders and regularly meeting with the community to understand their challenges and needs. Together, we have selected a few projects to start on that are the most urgent to child health and development.  

Once this work is completed, in the following 5-10 years, we will continue to develop and widen our focus to more areas of need, all the while ensuring that the community is a partner in their development journey. We plan for our partnership to continue until 2027 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
