TCF has accomplished so much in the last 15 years—and it is all because of supporters like you who empower us to help our children and community grow and thrive. But our work together is far from over! As the season of giving fast approaches, here are just some of the ways you can support TCF this holiday season:
Sponsor a Child
All of our children are wonderfully unique, with individual personalities and interests. Becoming a sponsor allows you to become a part of a child’s life and get to know everything about what makes them so special. There are few things as heartwarming and rewarding as watching a beloved child grow up, overcome challenges, achieve successes, and follow their dreams. All the children at RVCV are surrounded by love, and being a sponsor means you get to be a part of the family, too. Learn more about being a sponsor here.
Send a Student to College
At TCF, we believe that there is no greater gift than that of a quality education. With plans to support 53 students as they pursue higher education, we feel so fortunate to be able to encourage them through the college process and watch as they become thoughtful and ambitious young adults. But covering 53 college tuitions isn’t easy, and we need your help to ensure that all our children have the opportunity to earn their degrees! From $50 to cover a student’s application fees, up to $3,500 to cover a student’s whole tuition, no gift is too small to help build brighter futures for our grown-up kids.

Keep our Children’s Village Running
From breakfast to bath time, caring for all 97 of our kids requires a lot of work… and supplies! Luckily, RVCV is staffed by amazing, hardworking people who ensure all 97 of our children are well cared for. But we can’t do it alone. $2,000 can provide enough rice to feed the children of RVCV for an entire month, and another $600 will allow us to add beans to the plate! Rice and beans are staple foods in Tanzania, and RVCV kids enjoy them in pilau and with vegetables and spices. $1,800 will cover the annual salary of a House Mama who helps keep RVCV running. In addition to performing all the cooking and cleaning for each children’s home, the RVCV Mamas help provide our children with the intangibles of childhood, acting as a consistent source of love and support. Make your donation to help keep RVCV running.
Support Our Community Programs
TCF believes that the solution to generational poverty involves helping the community as a whole. In addition to supporting our kids at RVCV and partnering with Gyetighi Primary and Oldeani Secondary School, TCF also invests in the community through initiatives like our Rural Community Health Clinic and Microfinance program. With the nearest hospital over two hours away on foot, our Rural Community Health Clinic provides free medical care to everyone who needs it and serves over 20 people a day. Want to give our clinic the medicine it needs and provide care to those 20 patients? For $55, you can fill our clinic with medical supplies for the day! TCF also supports the community by creating economic opportunity through our Microfinance program. For just $125 you can provide one of our microfinance clients with their initial loan and empower them to launch their own business! Make a contribution to our Clinic and Microfinance Program today.
