Yes. It is possible to change the world.

When we identify and care for vulnerable children, we change their world. When we reach out and support families in their villages, we change the community. Involving the community creates a model which can transform a country.

Join us, and help change the world.

We are a registered Canadian charity (find us on Canada Revenue Agency's Registered Charities website) operating a home and providing care for orphaned children in Tanzania. We also work in neighboring villages to help children in need and those families living with HIV/AIDS.

We raise funds in Canada and partner with a Tanzanian charity to care for orphaned children in our home. We also employ and train local people to identify and advise village families in need. We learn from and involve the community.

When you give to CanaDares you can be sure that every possible dollar goes to where it is intended: directly to the caring for vulnerable children in our home at Vijaliwa Vingi. All administrative staff and board members in Canada are volunteers: our only Canadian administration costs are professional fees (legal and accounting) and bank charges.

While we can seek funding from governments and corporations for capital projects — for example, we our just completing a multi-purpose project and community-use building — our most pressing need is for donations to fund our ongoing operating expenses which currently cost approximately $2500 CDN/month.

Please consider donating to our work.

Exciting News! Thanks to the Uegama family, we now have our very own van…!
