Baldwin School Spotlight

The Tanzanian Children’s Fund has formed a very special relationship with the Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Baldwin is an all girls independent school that has sent students, staff, and alumni to volunteer at the Rift Valley Children’s Village for the past six years (and counting!).

While here, the Baldwin students have become great friends with the kids while learning the responsibilities of volunteering, and the staff and alumni have loved getting to know kids of a different culture. RVCV’s loving, playful atmosphere with an emphasis on education and responsibility is similar to that of Baldwin’s, and thus a joy to experience by the Baldwin community when they come. RVCV has also been working on empowering women through the Girls Club, microfinance, and more, which is a concept that is no stranger to Baldwin and something they like learning more about while here.

Not only have these Baldwin girls loved their time here at RVCV, but they have also continued to help upon their return to the States in many creative ways. Some of their favorite projects have included making alphabet books for the kids to color, designing plates and handmade headbands for each kid, and holding many clothing drives. Needless to say, they love seeing pictures of their new friends in Baldwin sports uniforms and handmade headbands after sending them over!

As TCF’s relationship with Baldwin continues to grow, there are many ideas in the works for how they can continue to help in different ways.  Thank you, Baldwin School!!
