CCY stands for Caring from Childhood to youth and primary work with orphan children and children in the need of support.

In Tanzania we work with individual acute help as well as towards a sustainable future. On the countryside in Tanzania are CCY running an orphanage and a primary school. The orphanage is committed to a care approach where family care is primary and support the children to closely stay in contact with families. CCY english speaking primary school was completed in 2013 and have a focus on creative thinking and problem solving.

In Sweden CCY is a non-profit organisation and responsible of communication and fond-raising. CCY in Tanzania is responsible of the operations in Tanzania.

CCY står för Caring from Childhood to Youth och jobbar i första hand med föräldralösa barn samt barn i behov av särskilt stöd

I Tanzania jobbar CCY med såväl akut hjälp som långsiktig och hållbar utveckling. I byn Bumilayinga drivs ett barnhem som är en storfamilj där alla hjälper till och bryr sig om varandra. Därifrån utgår även våra mer akuta samhällsinsatser som kommer ur ett nära samarbete med den lokala byledningen. I vår engelsktalande grundskola som öppnade 2015 är kreativt tänkande i stort fokus och vi har nolltolerans mot barnaga vilket vi tyvärr är ganska ensamma om. CCY i Sverige är en ideell förening och vårt jobb är att marknadsföra samt samla in medel till CCY i Tanzania som på plats driver verksamheterna.
