FONELISCO Foundation of New Life for Street Children and Orphans
FONELISCO is a non-profit, non governmental organisation striving to help the street children and orphans of Mwanza, Tanzania. FONELISCO is not affiliated with any religious or political movement and works to help children regardless of their belief or social background. Our work spans many issues such as HIV/AIDS, Health Care, Education, Poverty Alleviation, Street Children and Orphans, Environmental Conservation and Gender issues. We engage in out reach and community work as well. Presently, the organisation provides housing, food, education, medical care and advocacy for 66 children between the ages of three and seventeen, all of whom otherwise would have had no other choice but to live on the streets.
