Let Them Shine is a UK registered charity running a pre school Children's Centre in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania. We provide everything a child needs to thrive. We continue to support children when they move to primary and secondary schools.


Let Them Shine is a non-denominational charity and the focus is very much at a grass-roots level by ensuring that every penny raised through sponsorship goes to the Centre in full every month.


Sponsoring a child at the Children's Centre costs just £25 a month and can give many families the rewarding experience of providing all a child needs to live and learn well.

Thank you to everyone who so kindly supported our Christmas Lunch fundraiser. It was a great success. In addition to providing a lovely lunch for a lot of kids there was enough money for comprehensive renovations.


The Christmas holiday provided (almost) enough time attend to some urgent issues. Floors in one classroom and the girl’s bedroom accommodation were replaced due to salt ingress and both rooms fully redecorated. They look very smart. The office was decorated and finally power sockets connected. The outside walls were repainted and then decorated with colourful graphics by a talented local artist. A block rear wall was at last rendered. New curtains were hung, and spongey mats purchased.  Once again thank you for your support. 

We will start sharing reports and pictures of sponsored children with their sponsors this month. Because of the number of children in our care reports will run from March to July. If you’re keen for an update sooner, please get in touch.
