One of our goals is to assist rural communities with preschool education. The goal of MAJENGO KIDS & YOUTH TECHNOLOGY is to establish kids learning through ICT “children’s gardens” like plants in a garden.
Change for Children has worked in many of Africa’s culturally diverse nations over the past 40 years. Today, TAREO and MAJENGO COMMUNITIES work continues in Tanzania , where we have been working supporting children and youth education,health and using ICT technology since 2012.
Majengo kids technology school aims at solving the problems hidden by the fact that rural children, orphans and vulnerable children are invisible. Yet by the very nature of their situation, they are included among those that are classified as disadvantaged and poor in rural Tanzania – which means that there is a high tendency to focus on adult-related poverty while child problems are ignored, partly because children have little power and influence within a group that contains adults.
Our programs: Majengo’s preschool program has three dedicated classes- BABY CLASS-KINDERGARTEN- AND PRE PRIMARY. Our goal is to respond to the call of creating the emerging leaders of tomorrow. We are committed to impacting a synergy of skills, knowledge, and values in our children to lend them their inner voice for the world of Technology
Henry Agath -below Photos one of changer maker from Sweden ,volunteered with us helping in improving “LEARNING THROUGH ICT MODEL”, training TAREO management and helped TAREO on how design fund rising strategies.From his work he made TAREO go more steps in children and youths activities.
We envision today’s children as tomorrow’s leadership icons. We have impacted a milestone departure from the teacher-led to the child-centric. Even thogh we work on Rural Tanzania but our learning environment enables each child to realize their unique learning style, while our LEARNING THROUGH ICT -aided methodology helps them discover their own creative and aesthetic potential.
For us, the human rights of a child are non-negotiable.Driven by our ethos of “What’s Right for the Child” (TAREO), we place the human rights of a child at a premium. The right to trust, the right to gain respect, and the right to live in an abuse-free world is what shapes our fundamental cult and ethos.

You don’t need previous experience to work in Tanzania with TAREO . You’re there to help local staff and you’ll work alongside them. We’ll teach you everything you need to know to teach early childhood development,youths and adults . We also run regular workshops with all of our Childcare and Teaching volunteers. At these sessions, you can get advice and ideas to support your work.
If you’re interested in volunteering with children at Majengo , we recommend staying longer to make a greater impact. However, we do offer accommodation in our “TAREO apartment in Moshi town and local houses in village , if you have a shorter available time frame. Shorter projects will also be packed with volunteer work, to ensure that your time is maximized.
