Challenge

Thousands are without healthcare, clean water, safe living conditions, viable livelihoods, sexual safety, or education past grade 5. Impoverished widows raising their own and other orphaned children having lost loved ones through AIDS, illness, injury, and desertion have been identified by local community leaders. This program will benefit these women and children with priority care for individual healthcare needs, tools for safer living conditions, leadership and entrepreneurial skills.

Solution

This project will solve acute problems by working hand in hand with Tanzanian specialists to address health needs of 1000 impoverished women and children, providing vision correction, treatment of fractured and diseased teeth, diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions, and the means to test water. Delivery of 200 washable feminine kits, plus 300 more that local women will sew, will be provided to girls and women with sexual education to keep girls in school and prevent the spread of HIV.

Long-Term Impact

The potential long-term impact is transformation of 1000 vulnerable women and children into healthy confident community leaders. Needed vision correction, lack of disease, options for menstruation, and safe-sex knowledge translates into long-term health benefits and improved ability to learn, gaining skills to become independent, self sufficient women with opportunities. Healthcare delivery highlights community problems of clean water, hygiene and nutrition which can then be addressed.
