Share Tanzania operates in rural Tanzania, in the foot hills of mount Kilimanjaro. The goal is simple, to alleviate poverty, and improve the lives of vulnerable children living in the area.
Here at Share Tanzania we believe that a solution to many of the issues we see ourselves and others facing on earth, lay in the simple action of sharing. Sharing our time, resources, love and ideas can help to heal a great deal in this world.
For all much of our fund raising comes from our Director (Johns) Social media presence, the charity is a non religious entity and does not disseminate any information in relation to religion or spirituality, for all our staff may, As such children of all faiths and beliefs are welcomed, & helped by the support of people from all over the world with differing beliefs and faiths. Sharing knows no religion after all.
The work here began its life on 01/01/2014 with John our founding director, its goal was to assist the children into a better quality of life in some way.
Having visited Uchira as a volunteer for an NGO called Village to Village, John wanted to do something about the hardships of the children he had met in the area.
Many of these children had been driven into child labour in some form or another to provide for themselves, some in mines some in quarries or working in the fields, all of which is extremely hard work. Children work for very little pay whilst doing so... Many were managing to just a say provide for themselves with the basics of flour and beans to live off.
Many other promising and bright children, sat idol as parents frantically looked for ways to earn the money to pay school fees.
Most of the children in our Children' fund have sadly lost their parents to various illnesses, the majority being HIV/AIDS.
Other children we have helped may have been abandoned or lost one parent perhaps. Several are living with parents with mental disabilities also.

A Message to all the supporters of the children
Hello to all who read this, and share their hearts and support with our ShareTanzania family firstly, we feel a need to make this clear to anyone wishing to support the work we do here in Tanzania :)
"For all much of our exposure comes from our Director (John St Julien's) Social media presence, and indeed grew off the back of that also, the charity as a legal entity is and always will be a non-religious/Spiritual organisation and does not disseminate any information in relation to religion or spirituality in Tanzania or to the children we care for. For all our staff, of course, may on their social media accounts, and with it any fundraisers who are working for the betterment of the childrens lives through our work may also. However on the ground, here in Tanzania, we do not influence culture, and aim only to tackle the suffering poverty brings. As such children of all faiths and beliefs are welcomed, & helped by the support of people from all over the world with differing beliefs and faiths. Sharing knows no religion after all."Thank you
