Founded in 2010, Team Vista’s major development objective is to contribute to the reduction of poverty and achievement of sustainable development in Tanzania through its project in Kaloleni; a community with a high rate of HIV and many abandoned or affected children.
In order to meet this objective Team Vista has several community development initiatives. A child sponsorship program has been introduced offering the local children access to both Nursery and Primary School education with qualified teachers. Team Vista provides educational equipment; new educational facilities with connected electricity, a rain water tank and toilet blocks that enable learning enrichment opportunities. Along with a nutrition program run for the children each day, the project also provides medical screening and access for all students and families in need.
In addition, the project believes that business and the community can work together to achieve social and environmental outcomes. Team Vista develops community organisations and promotes local and community businesses such as sewing, farming and aquaculture to see the economic growth of families and the local are as a whole.
