About the project

UNDER THE MANGO TREE

Tanzania is a central African country characterized by a high concentration of albinos who are often victims of neglect, abuse and killing due to ignorance and superstition.

To save a goup of albino children  who now live at the Sisters’ House of Mother Teresa of Calcutta,  the Providence Sisters for abandoned children of Piacenza have decided to build and manage a Boarding School in the southeast area of Tabora.

AIM OF THE PROJECT

The project includes a house for orphans, a nursery and a primary school, a multipurpose room to provide protection and instruction by creating opportunities of integration between the albinos and the local population.

The structure follows the modern standard of school buildings and spaces for children.
