BACKGROUND STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMS NEED SOLUTION



Mabogini is a small ward located in Moshi municipality in Kilimanjaro Region, which is 2km south of the Moshi municipal.  The community has a population of  9,254 with 450 Households. The average income is below USD $ 80 per month, per family. In order to survive, nearly every member of the family needs to work. The economy of Mabogini is very weak, with the majority of residents being unemployed or underemployed as casual, unskilled, labourers. Many residents work in the nearby sugar plantation(TPC) or Rice plantation(KITIVO), only to find little or low paying jobs. To get by, some people engage in small business ventures, such as selling fruit and vegetables or selling cooked food, but this usually brings in less than $1 per day. Others brew and sell beer illegally, while some girls work in saloons or occasionally accept money in exchange for sex.
Mabogini ward suffers from poor child rights, drug and alcohol abuses, poor sanitary conditions, illiteracy, and girls and have been involved in drug and alcohol use, which contributes to higher rates of unwanted, teenage pregnancies and the spread of HIV/AIDS. The HIV/AIDS infection rate for the community is about 2.1%. In addition, girls are forced into marriage shortly after their initiation ceremony. The number of children who drop out of school is very high, due to inability to pay for school fees, uniforms, early marriages and other various cultural practices. Lack of education facilities remained a major challenge to children as a result of the above; very few children make it to higher grades, thereby contributing the vicious circle of poverty. 

The photos below shows some areas which we will need support from you partners and volunteers all over the world to help us to provide good facilities for their education and health, They have poor facilities for toilets,class rooms and kitchen as seen below;-
Toilet with No quality (this may spread diseases like cholera to the pupils)
