Since 2012, GO Campaign has been working with our Local Hero Brenda Shuma to address the needs of children with special needs in Moshi, Tanzania. Brenda founded the Gabriella Children’s Rehabilitation Centre in 2009 to support intellectually-challenged children in their physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development.
Through this holistic approach, Brenda is transforming the lives of these children and their families and changing the perception of these children in the community.
For the last two years, GO Campaign has been working with the Gabriella Centre to build a new state-of-the-art rehabilitation center to continue awareness rising to empower children with special needs while dispelling misconceptions surrounding their disabilities.
Since beginning, three new buildings have been completed (admin and classrooms; youth dorm; dining hall and kitchen), two new buildings currently under construction (parents’ dorm; therapy and classroom block), bakery building, completed garden, solar panels (to be installed later this year), and we’ve provided transportation to the main road. We’ve passed the halfway mark for funding the full dream, there is still more to do to bring this life-saving project to completion.
Thank you for considering this project and supporting efforts to create a better future for African children with Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and the wide spectrum of special needs. We hope you will join us on this journey of changing lives and communities in Tanzania.
