Qoheleth Foundation - Tanzania
Qoheleth Foundation-Tanzania is a non-governmental charitable organization acting in the Kilimanjaro and Mbeya regions and headquartered in Moshi town. The foundation was formed in 1996 by 17 individuals, to battle the increase of street children in Tanzania. In order to compliment the efforts of organizations assisting those already living on the street, Qoheleth decided to support at-risk youth in under-resourced rural communities, through education and training. To date, Qoheleth has worked in seven districts and currently has over 150 members.
Qoheleth's mission is to counter the migration of unsupported youth into urban centers by fostering an enabling environment in rural villages through education and training in domestic issues, income resources and health.
