Care and Compassion for Underprivileged Children and Orphans
The Bagamoyo Children Carers Association (BACCA) is a nonprofit NGO that provides free education to underprivileged and orphaned children in the small historical town of Bagamoyo located approximately 75 km north of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. In addition to free education, students receive free uniforms, books, school supplies, and a daily meal.
What We Do
Currently there is one school in this program employing 5people. There are 2 teachers, 1 cook, 1 cleaner and one security guard. There are 150 students attending the school. All of the students attending are sponsored through the BACCA NGO.
The BACCA organization is a Tanzania NGO aimed spcifically at pre-school education. The school offers basic academic skills including Kiswahili, English, art, math, and science. As part of the program, the children receive one meal per day.
This kind of pre-school education is extremely important as children must pass the Tanzanian Primary Primary School Entrance Examination in order to gain entry into the Tanzanian education system.
BACCA prepares students for the exam and starts the on the right step for continued success in life.
The main mission of BACCA is to raise awareness both locally and internationally of the plight of our underprivileged children in Bagamoyo. Many of these children are facing life threatening diseases, hunger, orphanhood and extreme poverty.
These challenges prevent many children from attending pre-school and primary school which then hinders their ability to enter the workforce once they become an adult.
At BACCA we realize that without education and basic healthcare, these children face a life of hardship and poverty. With the help of donors, we provide for a better future and prevent the ongoing cycle of misery.
