.....The on-going projects
We aim to work at a grassroots level, meaning we work alongside locals, hearing what their needs and dreams are. We aim to empower more and this is an instrumental factor in our on-going projects. StayAway hopes to inspire and educate thus creating a mentality of 'I can do it!'
....And we are;
It is very important to us that when we have no volunteers, our projects are still ticking over. Obviously we don't get nearly as much done, but we do try to stick to our objectives.
The Run Orphanage
The Run Orphanage was founded by Ras Austin In May 2011, the organization founder, came across 11 children that were living to the streets of Bwaise Slum.
These children are between the ages of 2 and 13 years old. Our main focus is the Children whose parents died due to various diseases who have experienced many negative changes in their lives and suffered neglect which has led to a lot of impacts like emotional trauma and neglect.
At any time you can see how well we are doing with a project you have contributed towards and of course you can stay involved long after your leave (Speak to us for help).
The Masai Village
The village of Mondoli juu has had a particularly difficult time developing due to lack of funding and the remoteness of the area. Since the beginning of 2012, StayAway has attempted to work around these impediments and focus on sustainable community projects with what resources are available. The community has alot of needs ranging from Safe Water, Health to Solar power.
Mondoli juu is a rural community that lacks any educational facilities. The lack of school facilities makes it difficult to continue school during the rainy seasons, making a tenuous school schedule for the children. The immediate focus at the StayAway in Tanzania is to build a safe water tank for the community and initiate a sustainable project to help the massai families.
Each project our volunteers contribute towards, from projects as simple as cooking and helping kids, to empowering the massai or building a school, StayAway has been involved directly.
