Description

Africa Bridge works in isolated rural villages in Tanzania, where the incidence of HIV/AIDS is high and children are vulnerable due to poverty and loss of parents.

We form village-based committees; members develop skills needed to identify and support vulnerable children.

Families caring for vulnerable children are organized into income-generating farm cooperatives; members receive seedlings, animals, training and support.

Small business training and start-up capital grants are provided to spark new business endeavors.

Many types of training are provided to improve health and nutrition, skiils and awareness of legal rights.
