Welcome to Centre for Education and
Cultivating the minds of future leaders
Dr. Dawood Sultan
Director (CEYD) The PeerCorps Trust Fund The current
mission of the PeerCorps Centre for Education and Youth Development
(CEYD) is to increase the operational capacity of local community
organizations in Tanzania that are actively involved in the care and
education of orphaned children and young adults whose lives and future
prospects are limited by poverty through training and financial
support. The CEYD partners with international institutions of higher
education and nonprofit nongovernmental charitable organizations to
enable a transfer of educational and financial resources necessary for
improving the performance of local community organizations. The CEYD's
strategic goal is to progressively build the capacity of local
community organizations to a point where they could independently
sustain and expand their operations.
Karing for Karim
Karing for Karim (K4K) is a group of grass-roots volunteers dedicated
to helping the Karim Children Care Centre (KCCC), a small 11 child
orphanage in Tanzania, achieve sustainability. Members of Karing for
Karim understand that success depends upon the creation and access to
opportunity. We believe that the children of the KCCC will attain
access to endless opportunities if their lifestyles are made
The opportunity to change is scarce for orphans in Tanzania. Many
Tanzanian orphans lack the building blocks necessary to escape poverty
and direct their lives as they choose. Their needs go beyond the
fundamentals; food, clothing and shelter. They require the stability
of a sustainable lifestyle; one which can provide them with an
education, healthcare and an all-around reliable quality of life.
Without this, they risk remaining in the cycle which produced them.
Their children will likely face the same fate.
The KCCC believes that money raised by way of a
volun-tourism business could fund internally sustainable
initiatives. To this end we are currently working to assess the needs
and capacities of KCCC and other orphanages throughout Tanzania.
