Announcing THE CEDAR TANZANIA MASQUERADE 2018 ball. It will be held on Saturday 9th June 2018, at The Yacht Club, Capri-Point, Mwanza.
Cedar Foundation Tanzania’s Target is to raise $30,000 for the renovation and equipping of Kamanga Community Centre.
Sengerema District Council, who are in a public-private-partnership with The Cedar Foundation Tanzania, have donated a building to Cedar Foundation Tanzania, to use for the community.
Cedar Foundation Tanzania would like to support the educational needs of Kamanagan women and girls, by turning this building into a Community Centre. From it we hope to run the following programs:
· A literacy program
· Health Forum to discuss issues of personal health
· SASA! Forum to discuss issues of power imbalance between men and women, with the aim of preventing violence against women and girls
· After-School Tutoring Support
· Computer Literacy Classes
· Classes in Business Acumen
· Sewing Classes
· English lessons
But before this can happen, Cedar Tanzania will need your help to raise the necessary funds, in order to renovate and equip the building, and turn it into a Community Centre.
We would like to raise $30,000 to renovate the rooms, fix the roof, landscape the grounds and equip the Community Centre with the educational equipment needed, so Cedar Tanzania can continue serving the women and girls of the Nyamatongo Ward and Kamangan community.
Funding for the tutors and the initial running costs for the Community Centre, will be raised through our partnership with Jembe ni Jembe 93.7 FM Radio. Their generous offer to give us 15% of the entry fees from their Jembeka festival on May 26th 2018, will more than ensure that the women and girls of Kamanga will have all they need to start their journey towards educational success!
2017 CEDAR CHARITY BALL SUCCESS
Your amazing support last year enabled us to successfully ship over a container of medical equipment from America to Kamanga Health Centre.
Our partners Project-Cure, donated medical equipment worth over $300,000. Cedar Foundation Tanzania’s part was to pay for the service maintenance checks of the donated equipment, the packaging of the equipment into the container, its shipment to Tanzania, its clearing at customs and then its transportation to Kamanga village by truck. Not a small task, but with your amazing donations at the 2017 Cedar Charity Ball, we were able to raise over $30,000, all the money needed to cover the costs of the above tasks.
The truck was unpacked at Kamanga Health Centre on the 14th January 2018. The opening was held on the 18th of January by our honoured guest Regional Commissioner Mr. V. K Mongella. And on the 26th of January 2018, The Minister of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children, Ms. Ummy Mwalimu, honoured us with a visit at Kamanga Health Centre. The Minister was able to see the rooms equipped with the medical beds, storage cupboards and wheelchairs that Project Cure had donated to us.
The safe transportation and arrival of the medical equipment, was made possible by your generous donations!
Thank you for all your support.
