Children of Choba

Rotary Club of Bradford donation to Children of Choba


RC of Bradford on Avon Are delighted to support local charity worker Valerie McGivern and the Children of Choba in Tanzania.  The Bradford Club has helped to furnish the newly constructed school hall with a grant for the local procurement of tables and chairs so that the primary school children do not need to sit on the floor to eat their meals.

 

Choba is a small hamlet on the coast of northern Tanzania in Pangani District, Tanga Region. It has an adult population of just over 300 with the majority struggling to survive way below the poverty line by subsistence farming and fishing. The area is at estimated to be about 50 years, in development terms, behind the better-known parts of Tanzania such as Arusha and Dar es Salaam.

 

Children of Choba is registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (Reg. no. 1138096) with an aim to help children in Choba and the surrounding villages to have a better start in life. Its main task is to run Choba English Medium Primary and Nursery Schools where their aim is to provide the highest possible standards of teaching and learning facilities and to date they have achieved marvellous results.
