HEKIMA 

Hello and welcome!  

We are an emerging NGO settled in Bukoba, Tanzania. Our focus is on the empowerment of  children and adolescents suffering from exploitation, poverty, and exclusion.

Our Vision

A Tanzania where children and youth are free from exploitation

 The impact of climate change 

Climate justice Many Tanzanians, such as children and youth, are facing the consequences of climate change, like less access to clean water,starvation, dropout of school , and low income. Also, it leads to the risk of family separation due to the hard life as a result of the low standard of living. Thus, we get thousands reasons to strengthen families, ensure they copy the change, and gain resilience from the effects. We invest in capacity building through entrepreneurship and business startups to reduce household poverty; at the same time, we provide school support, vocation training, medical care, and helping siblings in the family. 


On the other hand, a changing and uncertain environment due to climate change can have significant psychological impacts on children and youth, leading to stress, anxiety, and other mental health issues. 

 

 

  

Our Projects

"Zero to Hero-"Street Children

 The main initiative of the street project is to safeguard our children and adolescents living on the street by providing them with immediate help such as first aid, psychological support, and reuniting with families as much as possible.

Sauti Ya Vijana

 Despite efforts we have made, Sauti ya Vijana aims to support youth skills that could enable them to fit into the job market and seize surrounding opportunities. This will help reduce the number of youth with limited skills. 

  

"Smile" Project

This project aims to prevent children leaving home due to economic issues or abuse. We educate them about their rights, and provide mentorship to improve their future. Hekima leaders will conduct educational sessions at local schools.

Let´s give back!

As an NGO without any government funding, any contribution from our supporters worldwide is greatly appreciated. A little goes a long way!
