Making a Big Difference with a Small Charity

At Let Them Shine, we're not a giant organisation with a hefty overhead. We're a passionate group, literally running things from our kitchen tables! As they say, it takes a village, and we need your financial support to ensure we can continue to care for the children at the Centre. Our dedicated trustees ensure 100% of your donation goes directly to supporting the children at our pre-school center in Tanzania. 

Why Choose Let Them Shine?

  • Your Impact is Maximised: No administrative fees eat away at your contribution. Every penny goes towards the children's education, healthcare, and well-being.

  • Direct Connection: You're supporting a small, focused charity, ensuring your contribution makes a tangible difference in the lives of a specific group of children.

  • Passionate Volunteers: Our team is driven by a deep commitment to these children, not salaries.

We're Different from Large Charities

We understand you have choices when it comes to giving. Unlike bigger organisations, we offer a unique opportunity to be part of a close-knit community, directly impacting the lives of the children we serve.

We Need Your Help - Every Penny Makes a Powerful Difference

At Let Them Shine, we believe every child deserves a chance to thrive. Our Centre in Tanzania provides a safe haven for over 50 pre-school age children, offering them the essential building blocks for a brighter future – education, healthcare, and nutritious meals. This support continues through primary and secondary schools. Whether you make a one-time donation or arrange an ongoing sponsorship, there are several ways you can get involved and support our work.

The Power of Your one-off or regular donation

All donations to our general fund are the lifeblood of Let Them Shine. Your unrestricted donation allows us to address the Centre's most pressing needs, ensuring every child receives the care and resources they deserve. Whether it's updating educational materials, providing nutritious meals, or maintaining our facilities, your contribution makes a real difference.

Sponsor a Child, Change a Future

For a deeper connection, consider sponsoring a specific child! For just £25 a month, you'll directly invest in their well-being, fostering their educational journey and ensuring they have access to vital healthcare. Witnessing their progress and knowing you're making a tangible difference in their life is an incredibly rewarding experience.

 

 

Together, We Can Shine Brighter

With your support, regardless of your choice to contribute to the general fund or sponsor a child, we can accommodate more children seeking a safe and nurturing environment. Every contribution, big or small, brings us closer to making a lasting impact on their lives and the future of Tanzania.

At Let Them Shine, we believe that even the smallest contributions can spark a lifetime of change. Here's why your ongoing monthly donation, even at just £5, is critical to our success:

  • Predictable Support: Consistent monthly donations allow us to plan effectively and ensure our children have access to essential resources throughout the year.

  • Collective Impact: When many individuals give a little, it adds up to a significant force for good. Your £5, combined with others, provides nutritious meals, educational materials, and healthcare for our children.

  • Unlocks Matching Opportunities: Some corporate donors match employee contributions, so your £5 can potentially be doubled, maximizing your impact.

Of course, any amount you can contribute above £5 is deeply appreciated! Here's how your increased generosity can make a difference:

  • £10 a month: Provides essential school supplies for a child for a year. 

  • £25 a month: Sponsors a child, giving them access to education, healthcare, and nutritious meals.

  • £50 a month: Provide specialised healthcare services, including eye tests, medical diagnostics and operations. 

No matter the amount, your ongoing support is vital. Become a champion for our children and fuel their bright futures. Donate today and join the Let Them Shine family

Queen's Journey to Happiness at Let Them Shine

Meet Queen, a bright-eyed three-year-old who was three when she joined us at the Let Them Shine Children's Center in Lukani. Despite being the youngest, Queen's resilience shone through.

Queen's early life was difficult. After her mother abandoned her and her grandmother passed away, she went to live with her aunt. Unfortunately, her aunt's circumstances couldn't provide for Queen's basic needs.

 

When Queen arrived at the Center, she was malnourished, but the twinkle in her eyes never dimmed.

Finding a Safe Haven

At Let Them Shine, Queen found a loving and secure environment. Surrounded by other children, she's thrived in a nurturing atmosphere.

 

As you can see from the picture, Queen enjoyed the company of her peers and experienced the joy of childhood.
