Pamoja Tunaweza Boys & Girls Club, a non-profit organization in Tanzania registered under the name "Foundation for Youth Togetherness", was born out of the desire to provide educational and vocational opportunities; specifically, street-connected young men between 12-24 years old. This population is largely overlooked by local and international organizations, leaving a significantly vulnerable population with little-to-no resources.
Started in a chicken-coup in rural Moshi, Tanzania, Pamoja Tunaweza Boys & Girls Club was born out of the desire to provide opportunities to street-connected youth.
These young men have a basic education and spend their days on the streets, collecting rubbish and metals to sell in order to feed themselves. At night, some are able to return home while others find a quiet spot under a bridge and in a doorway to sleep in an empty rice bag. Drugs, alcohol, violence and abuse are abundant. We hope to make a significant impact on this cycle of poverty by focusing on these youth whom are so often left out of national and international aid programs.
