What We Do

The Foundation For Tomorrow‘s mission is to secure quality education and emotional support for orphaned and vulnerable children so that they may reach their full potential and thrive in their communities.

The Foundation For Tomorrow envisions a world where all children contribute to society as active and empowered citizens free of exclusion, disadvantage, and vulnerability.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

We are paying close attention to how the COVID-19 pandemic is unfolding in Tanzania and are responding and preparing our community for its inevitable spread throughout the country. Here are the ways TFFT is navigating this global health crisis:

1. Ensuring the well-being of our TFFT community: The team has been diligently assessing the needs in the vulnerable households where our scholars find themselves while school is closed. Much is needed: food, water, soap, buckets for hand-washing, and other critical resources. TFFT scholar, Baraka, visited the TFFT office yesterday to collect his learning materials. He, like all TFFT scholars, is eager to return to school and continue his studies, partly because of food security in his household. It is our job to offer the necessary support, in the form of emergency relief packets, during this time so that the TFFT community can best care for one another.

2. Sharing resources and knowledge: Last week, we provided TFFT scholars with educational tools and print resources about preventative measures, developed by the World Health Organization, so they can dispel rumors about the spread of the disease by sharing factual information. In this way, TFFT scholars are empowered to serve as leaders in their homes and communities in this time of crisis. Further, we provided them with resources for good personal hygiene.

3. Communication and coordination with school: We are working closely with our partner schools to coordinate study plans and learning resources for scholars so that they do not fall behind in their studies during this time.

4. Developing support for parents and guardians: We are developing guidelines for the parents and guardians of our scholars, many who have never gone to school, so they can both track and support their students' educational progress.
