Tanzania Orphans Upendo Community (TOUCO) is a non-profit organization aimed at bringing abundant life for orphans and vulnerable children in Tanzania.
Help Meet the Needs of Children
TOUCO hopes to expand into a 40 acre community of homes, schools and activity centers that will provide children a community and not just a place to sleep.
Orphans can’t learn if they’re sick, so TOUCO wants to provide care for children at the orphanage.
Orphans won’t have a future without education, so TOUCO hopes to provide schools on site at the TOUCO village through secondary school.
Over 3 Million Orphans
AIDS is at epidemic levels in Africa, creating over 20 million orphans in the continent and the majority of orphans in Tanzania.
Deep poverty affects Tanzania and forces caregivers to choose between eating or caring for a child.
