Born to Learn

Help us reach our goals. Help us to give them a future


Born to Learn (BTL) is an association founded with the aim of developing and empowering vulnerable communities in Tanzania.

NGO founded on the believe that education is a right that everybody should receive, no matter where and how they are born. The focus is set on educational inclusion for all children in need, so that they have access to quality education that responds to the unique needs of the communities where we operate in.

To achieve this we have created effective strategies to address the wider environmental system relationships, values, community and society, within each child develops, interacts and grows. We have implemented a new model of education based on creativity, emotional support, stimulation of lateral thinking, art and crafts, sports, human values, health, social and family support.
