TCFDT (NI) Child Sponsorship


We have launched the sponsorship programme in January 2015 estimating the running costs to be approximately 30GBP per child per month.

There are now 30 children (16 boys and 14 girls) in the Childrens home. If you are interested in fully or partially sponsoring a child please contact us at secretary@tcfdt.org or 1 Warren Park Avenue, Lisburn, BT28 1HG or contract us on +44 (0) 7586876000 (further detail at bottom of this page).


30GBP per child per month, covers baby formula, food and clothing costs. Also for the older children at school there is also the option to sponsor a child for their education too.

TCFDT (NI) Child Sponsorship Programme

 What is Child Sponsorship with TCFDT?
It is an undertaking to pay a regular monthly sum which will help to support a named child at TCFDT Kazima Children’s Home, Tanzania.

How much does it cost?
At present, it costs £30 per month to keep a child at Kazima. This includes all their food, baby powder, milk, accommodation and clothes. You can choose to either partially or fully sponsor a child at Kazima, in accordance with how much you are able to give (minimum donation £5 per month).

How do I pay? 
The preferred method is by standing order from your bank. We can send you a standing order form to complete and return to your bank. If you are a UK tax payer, and wish to gift aid your donation, then please request a gift aid form also.

Where does my money go?
Your money will be paid into our general account. It is then transferred to our Tanzania account at regular intervals, where the money is ring-fenced and allocated to the keep of the respective child.

How often will my sponsored child write to me?
As our children are very young, you may not receive a letter from your child until they are of an older age where they are able to do so. However, we believe it is special when you receive some form of correspondence from your child so will endeavour to send some form of age appropriate correspondence when practical e.g. a drawing / colouring in sheet etc. Your sponsored child will only reply to a letter you send as some sponsors may not want to enter into correspondence with their sponsored child.

How do I follow the progress of my sponsored child?
We will send you a recent photo and an update on your child on an annual basis. In addition, we will add your name to our mailing list so that you can receive our monthly prayer letter and annual newsletter which contains details on the progress of Kazima Children’s Home and our other projects.

When does sponsorship end?
We recognise that people’s financial circumstances can be unpredictable and you are free to cease your sponsorship at any time. However we do hope that most of our sponsors will be able to continue to sponsor our children for as long as they remain at Kazima Children’s Home. When the child leaves Kazima Children’s Home, then their sponsorship will end and we will inform you so that you can stop sponsorship or transfer sponsorship to another child.

If you have any questions or need help filling in the forms, please contact our secretary at secretary@tcfdt.org or 1 Warren Park Avenue, Lisburn, BT28 1HG or contract us on +44 (0) 7586876000 .
