Adam Rhodes travelled to Tanzania in May 2017 to visit the Pamoja Leo charity and see the fantastic work offered to young children and families. The charity focuses on supporting the community of Tanga, Tanzania, with a commitment to ensuring that children can grow in a happy and safe environment and avoid going into care.
Since Adam’s visit, Rhodes Wealth Management have had an ongoing partnership, supporting UK and Tanzania-based charity Pamoja Leo, funding worthwhile projects to benefit the health and well-being of the community as well as funding two teaching salaries.
Pamoja Leo teaches entrepreneurial skills to encourage stability, whilst providing education and healthcare kits for the local neighborhood. The founding directors of the charity Ed Hill and Georgina Harris-Hill have also begun working with the Tanzanian government to benefit more families throughout the country.
We provide an ongoing sponsorship to the charity, including monthly donations and fundraising events. In May 2019, we held a photography exhibition and silent auction, where we displayed photographs taken by the children, as part of a project the charity call ‘Through a Child’s Eye’. We were delighted to host an event with the founding directors of the charity, where we raised over £1,100 on the evening.
We will continue in 2020 benefitting such a worthwhile cause. To find more information and ways which you can help, check out the Pamoja Leo website www.pamojaleo.org.
