Re: Appeal For funding
Engender Health is Tanzania based NGO whose aim is to see an improvement in the wellbeing of Tanzanian Rural communities. Since 1995 we have been working with rural communities and the Tanzania Government to build modern well equipped health centers and educational institution to cater for the poor rural population in Tanzania.
Currently we are involved in building the Ipuli Rural Health Centre of Excellence which consists of health Centre and public educational unit. The clinical and maternity unit will cater for mothers and the child population. The second element of the project will be an educational unit which will teach a curriculum incorporating formal and non-traditional education to the community. The health centre and the school will be put up on a 10 acres piece of land donated by the local community. For more information on the project go to; http://architectureforhumanity.org/node/782
The proposed health centre:
Upon completion the new health centre will improve access to health services in the Ipuli region. Currently, residents have to travel 10 kilometers to reach the nearest hospital. With maternity services near to the people the infant mortality rate in the Ipuli area will decline dramatically. The educational unit will also assist in the raising of literacy levels in the area. The Project is also expected to offer employment opportunities to the local community.
We are appealing for funding from your organization to complete this project as the level of need in this community is urgent.
Thanking you in advance for your consideration on this matter.
