In the south of Tanznia there is a small village called Mkenda, which consists of no more than a few huts. Many people who fled Mozambique during the civil war, Muslims as well as Christians, live in this village and the outskirts of the region. Thanks to some merciful nuns, there already exists a well-attended kindergarten.
"In order to enable these children to continue their education after kindergarten, the Reiner Meutsch Foundation FLY & HELP envisioned the Building of a preschool, which can now be realised thanks to the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation. This preschool will consist of three rifferent classrooms, sanitary facilities as well as a kitchen in order to soon host about 120 children. It is thanks to the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation that these children are offered future prospects and can thus look into a brighter future.
“Especially in impoverished regions such as Mkenda, it is extremely important to send children to kindergartens or preschools as parents often take their children to work on agricultural fields, for example, due to a lack of childcare facilities.”
