Orphan waiting for food WODECHE (Women’s Development and Children’s Education) is a non profit founded by Sulafa Mohamed. She started this program to help take care of 30 orphans that were located in her immediate neighborhood in Dodoma. Her program helps orphans that have been relocated into their extended families’ homes or with strangers, which is how most orphans in Tanzania are taken care of.

Sulafa Mohamed and some of the orphans she cares forWODECHE is a small scale grassroots non profit that was started because of the need to support orphans and their education and welfare. PEN Trust has recently partnered with WODECHE and given each child a box of food (216 meals) as well as a care package of lotion, shampoo, soap, a toothbrush, toothpaste, pencils, pens, notebook paper, crayons, a small toy and reading books.
