The Village Angels program serves two acutely underserved groups: at-risk unemployed young people and forsaken elders in Northwestern Tanzania. We employ and train these youths to cultivate and deliver food, supplies, minimum health care and house repairs to the elders of our program. Most importantly, our youths provide companionship to a group of people who would otherwise be lonely most of the time.
Our youths learn to to farm our land, grow chickens, harvest honey, sew and weave. Most of their products are supplied to our elders. Some are also sold to help make the program self sufficient.
