The Venance Care Foundation is a preschool founded in 2014 by a Tanzanian local, Venance Mark Shayo. It is located in a poor neighbourhood in Arusha. The preschool provides affordable education to 45 children between the ages of 3 and 5. The children are from disadvantaged backgrounds – there are many local families who cannot afford to send their children to school. The Venance Foundation provides students with porrige three days in a week and lunch two days in a week to ensure they receive the nutrition they need. There are two teachers with classes divided into baby class and kindergarten, and Venance himself takes an active role caring for the children.
