Sponsoring Children

You are aware that Provision Charitable Foundation is working with Chalice foundation, the large Catholic charity headquartered in Nova Scotia, at Luhombero to coordinate our projects, along with Dalhousie university. As part of that, we have committed to raising support for 100 children at Luhombero. Chalice needs a minimum number of supported children to fully commit resources to the area. Although at this point, with 85 children already sponsored, they are moving ahead on the assumption we will get to 100. 

You can help.


Our major projects are Epilepsy Care, Education, Women's Support, Health Care, Dental and Oral Health, and Micro Enterprises.


Over the years Provision Charitable Foundation has been blessed with the partnership of ROW Foundation, Dalhousie University, Jones Family Foundation, Saint Francis University College of Health and Allied Sciences, Engineering Ministries International, and Provision CPA.



Provision Charitable Foundation's work would not have been possible without the dedication, compassion, and giftedness of its team members. 



Provision Charitable Foundation has operated under very firm financial principles since its inception. The accomplishments would have been impossible without the generosity of our donors. Read about: Our Commitment to Donors, Our Employment of Epileptic People, The Women’s residence at Saint Francis University, and more.


 Abuses and Discrimination Against Girls and Women.


Provision Charitable Foundation is beginning to advocate more actively for women and children through the Tanzanian legal system. As a first step, we are supporting a woman, Oliver, through law school.

Provision Charitable Foundation finds its roots in the work of Dr. Louise Jilek-Aall. Discovering that the people of the Wapogoro tribe, in the Mahenge mountains of the Ulanga district, suffered from an unusually high prevalence of epilepsy and never received medical treatment, she started the Mahenge Epilepsy Clinic in 1960, to serve the epileptic patients in that region.

Ken and Nancy travelled to Tanzania in 2009  and witnessed the life work of Dr. Louise Jilek-Aall. The inspiration provided was the beginning of Provision Charitable Foundation.


Today Provision Charitable Foundation continues to strive to improve the lives of people living in the region.


Provision Charitable Foundation first started in the town of Mahenge and then expanded to the town of Ifakara and the Kilombero Valley. It is our goal is to continue to fulfil our mission of improving the lives of the Tanzanian people.

We would appreciate any assistance. Please contact us if you need further information. Thank you.
