What you've helped us achieve so far:
- 400 students in the program since 2010
- 85 graduates
- Vocational training and career placement
- The Guide for Educators of Persons with Albinism included in the official educational curriculum of all schools in Tanzania since 2013
Every couple of years UTSS runs a Summer Camp for 170 children with albinism who are abandoned by their families and have nowhere to go when the residential school term is up.
At summer camp we make sure every child knows that they are loved and that they can accomplish anything they dream. See the difference that camp makes to change lives.
