Vortex Donates Books to the Kilimanjaro Orphanage Centre

Over the past two years, Vortex employees in the UK and the USA have collected over 6,000 children's books for the Kilimanjaro Orphanage Centre in Moshi, Tanzania.

"It was quite a challenging effort," commented Travis Young, Vice President of Global Business Development. "We originally intended the books to be delivered to a local primary school in Moshi, but we found it difficult to communicate and get support. Luckily we found the great people at the Kilimanjaro Orphanage Centre, as they have tremendous need for books and educational materials."

The Kilimanjaro Orphanage Centre in Pasua was founded in early 2009 by Edward Lazaro responding to the recognized need to provide care and shelter to an increasing population of orphaned children in the Moshi area. The Centre is a registered NGO (Charter #3959) that provides residency care for orphaned children as well as day care and community support for other children at risk.

The Kilimanjaro Orphanage Centre currently accommodates 30 children mostly between the ages of 4 and 10. Future plans are in place to care for about 100 children. The orphanage provides matron supervision, regular nutritious meals, clothing, as well as, school needs that include uniforms, books, materials and fees.
