Empowering young people to lead change in their communities
Young people are key of change in every societies. Baraco Foundation works to enhance young leadership skills amongst youth in local communities to help them solve most prevailing challenges resulted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
By amazing support from our project supporters Global Youth Mobilization, 25 young leaders have been trained and equiped with resources to lead change in their local communities during the pandemic.
Awareness creation and community mobilization
Right information is a very powerful tool in combating Covid-19 pandemic and its effects.
Baraco Foundation conducts awareness creation workshops in grassroots community level especially where information are hard to reach to imcrease awareness and understanding amongst community members on prevention and control measures to slow the spread of the virus.
Provide prevention resources where are needed most
In this hard time of the pandemic, most communities suffers from shortage of prevention resources such as hand washing stations, hand sanitizers, PPE and face masks.
By the support from Global Youth Mobilization, Baraco Foundation distributes these resources in the areas of great need most in public areas such as rural schools, dispensaries, bus stations and markets.
Support education of children in great need
In Tanzania, it only takes a pair of school uniform, few exercise books and a pencil for child to attend classes. But during this tough period of the global pandemic, thousands of children are not able to attend classes just because of a one pair of school uniform, few exercise books and a pencil.
Baraco foundation works to support undeserved children from families living under poverty line just to ensure that their dreams are not cutted-off by the pandemic.
