About Us

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

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. 


Get Involved

We need all the help we can get to transform the lives of young Tanzanians and help them achieve their ambitions. Would you like to get involved?
