What is Uhuru Walk

An overview

Uhuru Walk is an annual community service project usually held in February each year.

Our Objectives

We want to bring together businesses & individuals to walk in support of Early Childhood Learning in schools, homes & institutions housing underprivileged or sick children.

How?

Via regularly arranged trainings, teachers & care givers are equipped with guided ways of passing new concepts in art, speech, math, literacy & gross motor skills. Visits are also organised, involving play with the children, gift giving, reading & teaching in a fun environment.

Freedom

Uhuru is a Swahili word (from the Arabic root Hurr), meaning Freedom. Our goal and aspiration is to pass the essential tools of learning to these young children so that their foundation is strong as they progress through higher levels of learning, leading to a more aware, more knowledgeable and more skillful nation in the future.

Let's have some fun!

Part of the excitement in the walk also comes from the very popular treasure hunt, where teams are pitted against each other to solve some of the most cryptic clues, leading to the winning of gifts and prizes.

The Brains

The organising team and the volunteer corp is also made up of young and middle aged individuals who make the event happen, through their own initiative and dedication.

Why participants love Uhuru Walk

Why our Sponsors Support Us

Childhood is a time of innocence and joy, unfortunately there is a growing, unrecognized menace that robs children and their families of this special moment in their lives. Childhood sicknesses deprive of hope and dreams from our children and cases of diseases like cancer are increasing year after year. We have learnt that 80% of these children are from low and middle-income families. Health services are often inaccessible, unaffordable and too expensive. TP Services Limited also known as Travelport Tanzania believes that every child with any sicknesses like cancer has a right to quality education no matter the status of the family and that all sick and underprivileged children deserve a better education as their counterparts do and should not go through this journey alone.
