Welcome to
Kijana Kwanza

Kijana Kwanza (Young People First) is a non-denominational grassroots project based in Moshi, Tanzania that helps children and young people access education, vocational learning and life skills training to prepare them for a future without poverty.

Founded in November 2018, the organisation has grown considerably and now operates across multiple sites, delivering both emergency support and long-term interventions that transform lives.

Sponsor a student

Our waiting list of young people in need of sponsorship is growing. Can you provide the gift of education and learning for a young person in need?

Our sponsorship programme is holistic — not only do we support young people to complete their education, but we also invest in their welfare needs and extra-curricular learning.
