The KOC in Pasua was founded in early 2009 by Edward "Teacher" Lazaro responding to the recognized need to provide shelter and care to an increasing population of orphaned children along with the very generous support of Zainab Ansell - Director of Zara Tours and Founder of Zara Charity Our People ( Zara Tours, Kilimanjaro Orphanage Center, Zara Charity)

We are a registered Non- Governmental organization (Charter # 3959) our mission is to provide shelter, nutrition, safety, healthcare, and a long term education to orphaned at risk children.
It is our hope to provide an environment which offers an opportunity to excel & rise above tremendous obstacles life has put before them.

Currently we provide care and shelter to over 65 children in a small site in Pasua from age 3 years up to 18 years and we also provide a day care programme to the families in need in our community.

The long term plan is to care for over 100 children in an area South of Pasua. We have the site picked but we now need to raise the funds to build and complete this plan and vision we have had for a long time.
There is an ever increasing number of orphans in the surrounding area of Tanzania so with this plan in place we can provide the care and shelter we have already done so, to our inspiring amazing kids in our center today but we want to be able to offer this to so many more kids in the surrounding areas of Moshi.

So with this, our "Buy A Brick" campaign was born, but WE NEED YOUR HELP to fulfill this goal and make this dream a reality.

So please support this cause and "Buy A Brick" and be a part of this journey with us!

Asante Sana.
