TIME TO HELP FOUNDATION

2018 ACTIVITIES REPORT

  1. TARGETS

At the start of 2018 financial year, Time To Help made the following set of targets:-

  1. #1 Renovation Project

In December 2017 Time To Help Foundation started the first ever renovation project of Charambe Orphanage Center which was Sponsored by Time To Help Netherlands, we managed to finish in February 2018. After a successful project we decided to set a target of at least one more renovation project for the year 2018, an orphanage center or a government school in Dar es Salaam Region was preferred.

 

  1. #2 Education and Training Project

One of the most common goals of Time To Help Foundation is to assist the young generation in education, currently we are more based in assisting students of higher learning institutions and those who are in vocational training institutions because it is our belief that they are very near to going back to the streets and they can be a part of our country’s economic development by working on their professions, hire themselves and eventually improve their individual life. Our target was to be able to help at least 30 students for the year 2018, which is almost 50% more of number of students we managed to pay for in 2017.

 

  1. #3 Clean Water Project

In supporting government’s efforts in bid to provide safe and clean water to the Tanzanians community, Time To Help Foundation is aware of that situation and we decided to set a target of finding donors for at least 20 new water wells. A very big challenge because it is more than 100% of 9 water wells we managed to drill in 2017 financial year.

 

  1. #4 Ramadhan Project

During the holy month of ramadhan Time To Help Foundation calls for donations so that we can offer hot iftar dinner to fasting Muslims through mosques in Dar es Salaam region and food packages to needy families around Dar es Salaam, Bagamoyo, Kibaha, Zanzibar etc. We decided to set a target of at least 10,000 plates of iftar to mosques which is more than 30% compared to 7,150 plates we were able to offer in 2017 financial year. A target for food packages was 1,500 packages, more than 20% increment of 1,224 packages given to needy families in 2017.

 

  1. #5 Kurban Project (Meat Sadaka)

During Eid El Hajj festival and throughout the year Time to Help Foundation mobilizes funds for cattle slaughtering and distribute meat packages of 3kg to needy families, prison, orphanage centers etc. Our target for 2018 was to slaughter 500 Cows, Same target as 2017 financial year because in 2017 we were able to achieve only 60% of the target.
