Please support this Children's Village for orphans and vulnerable children in a remote part of Tanzania and prevent its closure.

We're still collecting donations

On the 28th December 2020 we'd raised £2,573 with 31 supporters in 90 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

1603035212_ce3dd3e6-088d-4a8c-ac9b-f47d584e053d.jpgOrphans in the Wild is a registered charity set up by Tavistock based Geoff and Vicky Fox whose family run a safari business in Tanzania, to support an isolated rural community which has been ravaged by the effect of HIV/Aids.

Currently there are 51 orphans and vulnerable children in the Igoda Children's Village in Mufindi, a remote part of Tanzania in the southern highlands and a further 35 older children supported in the surrounding villages.

Like many charities “Orphans in the Wild” is suffering a marked downturn in donations. Donations by safari guests have dried up as the safari is currently closed due to Covid 19. 

“It’s a desperate situation,” says Geoff. “ if we don’t  generate   sufficient funding our children will be homeless. These are the silent victims of Covid 19 and they desperately need our support.”

We are looking for a target of  £10,000 to provide sufficient funds to keep the children’s village and operational during these challenging times. 

Every donation will have a direct impact on the children and young people we are supporting in the Children's Village." 

A donation of £15 covers a midday meal for a month, £20 provides a primary school uniform £30 a secondary school uniform  and £75 board and lodgings for one term. 

£200 would cover the majority of a child’s accommodation and education fees for one year, however any donation is gratefully received.
