The One Person Project is a program of The Friends of Kahama Society
The One Person Project (The Friends of Kahama Society) will demonstrate a model of action that illustrates how one community working together can bring about real and lasting change in another community, through education, advocacy and support.
To make a difference, one person, one community at a time in the Kahama region of Tanzania and the Muhanga region of Rwanda.
Inclusiveness, Empowerment and Accountability.
We are open to all, regardless of ethnicity or religion.
Our aim is that everyone - our sponsor communities, and those supporting them, feels empowered.
We are developing a purpose driven; results focussed approach, which holds us and our sponsor communities, accountable.
One Person aims to:
Educate and build awareness about poverty issues in Kahama and Muhanga.
Work with the representatives and citizens of these regions to determine which projects are likely to lead to the ultimate goal of self-sustainability and social transformation.
Organise fund raising events, with monies raised being used to ship, or purchase in Tanzania and Rwanda, resources and equipment to be used in all aspects of education, sports in schools, healthcare, animal husbandry, sewing co-ops, and sustainable transport development (bicycles).
Regularly visit the target areas to meet with families and organizations in order to monitor and improve systems and results.
Encourage professionals to travel to Kahama and Muhanga to teach and mentor fellow professionals, and to advocate for these communities on their return. And to encourage all organizations and individuals to visit and/or support the children and families of Kahama and Muhanga.
