WE DO WHAT THE BIGGER CHARITIES DO

kids4school is truly a charity with a difference. WE CHANGE LIVES

kids4school projects

kids4school is a multifaceted ministry which primarily enables children to go to school.  
But along with child sponsorship we operate a feeding program, and are involved in many different construction and training projects.

— Housing Project

The kids4school Trustees decided to help our sponsor families by building some basic houses for them. Previous to this they live in mud-block houses with mud and stick roof. Not very water-tight at all and no security.

 

— Special Schools

kids4school is supporting special needs schools at Hombolo, Buigiri and Dodoma Deaf School.  The children in these schools are blind, partially sighted, disabled, Albino and deaf.

— Christian Academy

kids4school will continue over the next few years to develop their 18 acre site close to the kids4school lodge.  The work is done in phases.

— Feeding Program

Many of the students, have to walk miles just to get to school – on an empty stomach! Can you imagine?

Their parents are farmers and times are tough – families are battling through to the next harvest two or three months from now. That is if the crops can survive that long. When they get home this evening, there will be little on the table – some porridge, if they are lucky. All this, and exams to pass.

— Child Sponsorship

Students who are registered on the sponsorship program get the uniforms and books that are necessary to attend school.  They also are provided with a daily meal at the kids4school feeding stations.  They attend schools that have benefited greatly by the wider work of kids4school and its sponsors – classrooms have been renovated, new toilets blocks built and water storage tanks constructed to provide schools with clean and safe water.

— Education

Primary & Secondary Education is available in Tanzania.  However, in order to attend school each pupil is required to have a school uniform and necessary books.

Because of the extreme poverty that families find themselves in, it is impossible for them to raise the necessary funds so their children can get the start in life if they are to get out of the poverty trap they are in.

Who We Are

kids4school is an Evangelical, Nondenominational, Christian Ministry.

We believe in brief that:

God: There is one God, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Father: a spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable in attributes

The Son: is true God and true man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He lived a sinless life, died an atoning death, and was bodily resurrected, ascended, and His imminent return for His bride, the Church.

The Holy Spirit: is a divine Person who, indwells, guides, teaches, and empowers the believer, and convinces the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment

The Bible: inspired by the Holy Spirit, inerrant in the original writings and our guide and final authority in faith and life.

Salvation: is by grace, through faith in the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ as the sole means of attaining eternal life.

Humankind: was originally created in the image and the likeness of God, fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All people are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved (Born Again) only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

In seeking to show the love of Christ, kids4school will strive to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people regardless of their age, race, gender, colour or religion

Testimonials

David Lister – Bloomfield Ave Congregational Church

When I think of our trip to Tanzania in August the words life-changing comes to mind! It is incredible to help in the incredible work that kids4school are doing in Tanzania. There are so many opportunities to serve God in a practical way and interact with the children and families in Tanzania who express pure joy every single day! If you are considering going on a trip, my advice is GO! It really is life-changing and I cannot wait to return!

Dean Nickels – Millisle Baptist Church

My name is Dean and I had the opportunity to serve with kids4school. This was an amazing trip to work & witness. It was a rich blessing to see my sponsored child first hand and help with basic needs for children and families in the poorest of countries. The team that was brought to serve God has truly drawn me closer to Christ. Thank you kids4school
