The foundation was founded by Alice Muhonja,established in 2008 and registered as a non governmental organization in 2010 with mandate to address issues of vulnerable children who were not attending school due to poverty ,abuse,abandonmentand neglect from their families or guardians.Safisha Africa Welfare Foundation works in Mowlem Settlement Scheme and has assisted more than 2,000 vulnerable children from very needy families to get education.
Among the achievements of Safisha Africa Welfare Foundation is the establishment of a Safisha Africa School registered and offering the quality eduaction to the most vulnerable.In conjuction with the organization the school offers education,catters for those children brought as abused,neglected,raped and thrown on the streets.The Foundation caters and shelters for those vulnerable children.
Due to the rising poverty levels many families are facing financial crisis to an extend of unable to pay rent where they stay leaving their children nomads of luck of education. Safisha steps in to shelter the children who are moved from one place to the other without proper education.When there is need the organization has paid rent to the most vulnerable families .
The Foundation therefore caters for the education support program,Feeding,school uniforms,rescue, and livelihoods.
For more than eight years the organization has proven to be a true charity to the needs of the community and for working with the community.
SAWF is currently purchasing for land to house the many vulnerable children on board and awaiting for them to continue with education.. In 2008 after a post election violence we started a feeding program with children who were hawking in the area we operate ; which is currently a project of the foundation that assist the community. We start with ECD(early childhood Development) to children of grade 1-8 give a child a strong foundation and future; building their esteem,socially,psychologically and emotionally in Mowlem settlement scheme .Mowlem is a settlement scheme with indicators of rural inhabitants moving to town in search of jobs which never come their way.
SAWF has rented a premise which is paid monthly .The organization recruits volunteers from Switzerland, Germany, New Zealand, Finland, Denmark, U.K, U.S.A, Sweden,Austria,France,Iceland, and other countries. At the same time we have travelers, interns, researchers and tourists who visit and have a home stay. Such an exposure is received well by the organization and it leaves better memories. Watch out what the volunteers say on reviews.
The word Safisha is a local Swahili word meaning ‘clean’. Safisha targets to empower the poor families through education and welfare to develop them to be better persons leaving a mark in the lives of families and transforming the backgrounds they have been raised in. There is nothing one can do to a child who has been born from a poor family or background but there is so much one can do to transform the destiny of that poor child .Read more on how you can transform the destiny of a child on sponsorship, what we do on volunteers’ page.
