- Kibo Secondary School (Moshi)– The school is located in Moshi, five minutes’ walk from our facilities in in Moshi, The school has excess capacity in infrastructure and basic facilities, ironically this is a problem, the school is in the brink of a falling in a negative spiral as it has a student population and fee rates that cannot support its running expenses and maintain a good quality of living and learning. The school finds it difficult to keep teaching staff and therefore un able to attract and keep an optimal population of students to pay enough fees to keep good teachers to attract more students and so on. Intervention by ACWF should therefore be to (i) populate the school by making KIBO secondary school a service provider (facility) to receive our sponsored students (ii) Assisting the school raise school fees by financing the transition period of recovery (iii) Sponsoring teachers salary to cushion the academic staff from shocks emanating from unstable student population (iv) Long term Volunteering at the school, the school has six good staff houses that may be available to retired or sponsored volunteering teachers,(v) Short term volunteering, the school is a placement to short term volunteers (vi) The school may receive education equipments donated by other schools, for example equipment discarded by other schools modernizing are still good enough here (vii) Infrastructure and equipment (viii) ACWF is sponsoring a school website where a clearer insight of the school can be displayed. .

- Children of Destiny Home (in Moshi). This is an orphanage fifteen minutes walk from our Headquarters and facilities in Moshi. It is run by an amazing young Tanzania girl MARGARET MPONDA who is literally giving up her girls day to stay with 24 orphans. MARGARET possesses almost nothing more than determination. It is an ideal project as the orphanage had to walk away from previous sponsors having differed on certain issues. Our activities in this home are (i) Volunteering, the kids from 5years to about 16 need a human contact (ii)ACWF is assisting with their registration matters and strategic planning (iv) All kids are available for part or full sponsorship especially so on their education, this issue becomes more and more expedient as they grow up. (v) They are now dwelling in rented premises; they need to grow up in their own landed properties. (vi)The Home needs to have projects to generate their own income for sustainability as well as reducing dependence and pressure on donations.
