A secure future for street children

Tumshangilieni Mtoto, abbreviated to  „Shangilia“, looks after around 250 children and youths. The children are educated to reach their full potential. They receive a roof over their heads, enough to eat, and continuous support from a team of dedicated teachers and social workers. After they have finished school, vocational training follows.

According to their capabilities, talents and interests this can lead to a quality practical profession or even a university degree.
