Children of Tanzania
Kids here live in the shadow of Africa's highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. It also boasts the Serengeti, a well-known, wildlife-rich national park.
Although Tanzania is a nation rich in natural resources, much of the nation still lives in poverty.
Tanzanian children don’t have many of the basics we take for granted, like reliable electricity and water.
Few families have money to invest in farming, and the country as a whole has very little technology.
Because of this, 68% of people in Tanzania survive on less than US$1.25 a day.
The Tanzania Demographic and Health Survey states that 42% of all children under 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition.
Many parents have to choose whether to use what little money they have to send their kids to school or to buy food.
That’s a choice no mom or dad should have to make.
I hope you enjoy Tanzania Safari & Zanzibar Beaches!
