KWAMKONO DISABLED CHILDREN’S CENTRE - TANGA DIOCESE

Formerly known as the Kwamkono Polio Hostel, the Kwamkkono Disabled Children’s Centre provides a home for children with physical disabilities, and funds their education and rehabilitation. The centre was established 1962 and is based in the Tanga Diocese of the Anglican Church of Tanzania (ACT).

The centre supports 50 children (28 girls and 22 boys) via an annual USPG grant. This funding goes towards the children’s education and vocational training. The money also supports farm work the hostel does (growing vegetables and maize) and building repairs and maintenance. USPG has supported this programme since the 1990s.
