We Support Mtoto Tanzania
At Kirstein we believe that we have a societal and social responsibility to our community, and we want to contribute to the world around us. We have always been dedicated to educational matters, as our company is fully based on knowledge.
Kirstein's business is run by our employees' knowledge which, of course, is rooted in their education, and that is precisely why we want to help improve the education of others. We also consider it our responsibility to help children and young adults who do not have the same educational opportunities as we did. That is why we have chosen to support Mtoto – a non-profit Danish organisation that funds the daily operations of an orphanage and supports the children's education.
Mtoto Tanzania seeks to improve the lives of poor children in Tanzania. They provide care and attention in orphanages that they have built with the prospect of better living standards, the opportunity to go to school and to get an education and a brighter future. Mtoto offers the children both educational and mentoring programmes that give them the opportunity to attend school and improve their personal development. The projects are situated around northern Tanzania in Usa River, Arusha in corporation with the local community that helps run the daily operations. We are happy to be the main sponsor of the wonderful project. We support Mtoto Tanzania Orphanage and their newly established project by funding monthly rent and the education of two children.
The two children that we sponsor are seven-year-old Jonas and six-year-old Nengarivo. Both children come from very poor families, and they have both lost their parents at an early age. At Kirstein, we are happy to be able to help them through life and give them a brighter future.
Jonas and Nengarivo have moved to Mtoto Orphanage, and on the 11th of January, they began going to school at Tumaini Mission Nursery and Primary School in Usa River.
The school is run locally and in close cooperation with a Danish couple that lives in Arusha. Therefore, all the furniture at the school are from Danish schools. The school is relatively new and is focused on the creative aspect of teaching, which is a rare sight in Tanzania. Furthermore, there are two teachers per each class of 25 children, which is an atypical proportion in the country.
