Application fee: US $189
Early Childhood Center in Arusha, Tanzania
This project is the first and one of its kind in Arusha that receives infants without prejudice to any preexisting health condition, such as being HIV+. Before this project, these infants use to stay at the hospital, because there was no place to take care of them. This project was established to provide interim care for infants in need, it’s a place where the babies will receive proper nutrition, medical care, as well as all the love and attention they deserve.
