LARCHFIELD CHILDREN’S HOME
Change a life. Inspire a dream. Build a future
Founded by Mackrell International Member James Berry, Larchfield is an official NGO in Tanzania where thousands of children are living without access to even a basic level of food and water, security and care. Its purpose is to serve as a safe and secure refuge for young children in a particular district in Tanzania (Mkuranga, south of Dar-es-Salaam) whose families have been dislocated and destroyed by HIV and who lack the basic amenities such as shelter, nourishment, care and education.
Its aim is to build a caring environment for these orphans, so they may thrive and where, despite having begun their lives at a disadvantage, they can grow up to lead happy, responsible and caring lives and be a credit to the community they live in, inspiring others by their example.
UNICEF, also known as the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund, is a United Nations agency responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide. Working in more than 190 countries and territories UNICEF's activities include providing immunizations and disease prevention, administering treatment for children and mothers with HIV, enhancing childhood and maternal nutrition, improving sanitation, promoting education, and providing emergency relief in response to disasters.
The agency is among the most widespread and recognizable social welfare organizations in the world with its prime goal to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence.
