Simbas Footprints Foundation is a registered Tanzanian NGO (no. ooNGO/R1/00214) serving children in the Kilimanjaro region. First established as a children’s home in 2011 with a focus on sustainable family reunification, our foundation evolved into Simbas Community Center in 2017.
At the heart of our mission, we prioritize community voices in program development, enabling community members to take an active role in shaping their own development.
Simbas is working on 11 programs which benefits over 2000 youth and 300 women.

through our programs
In the Kilimanjaro Region, women and children face significant challenges that undermine their well-being and opportunities for a brighter future. These challenges are rooted in limited access to critical resources and opportunities, perpetuating a cycle of poverty and inequality.
Improving healthcare access and services is crucial for the well-being of women and children. Our interventions encompass providing access to health insurance, implementing comprehensive sexual and reproductive health education programs, and launching awareness campaigns to improve health literacy and rights awareness.
Education is a powerful tool for breaking the cycle of poverty and improving the prospects of both women and children. Our interventions include providing scholarships, teacher training for higher education quality, establishing supplemental English educational clubs to enhance language proficiency, and organizing extracurricular programs to ensure access to high-quality education..
Empowering women and young people economically can lead to increased independence and improved living conditions. Our interventions include vocational training, life skill development, and support for small business development.
