HAVE A LOOK INSIDE!

WELCOME AT FONELISCO




FONELISCO is based in the city of Mwanza, in the north west of Tanzania. In May 2006 FONELISCO moved from the town center to another place and is currently located in Ilemela, in the countryside on the way to Parkland Hotel.


 



The premises contain one large house of 6 bedrooms, a large sitting room, also used as classroom,a dinning room and an office. There are bunk beds in each room where one - three children sleep in one mattress. Outside the house is the kitchen with three fireplaces for cooking. This large house contains three toilets and three showers/bathrooms. The house is connected to the national power grid and therefore is supplied with electricity on a constant basis.

 

 


In addition there is a separate smaller house for the girls containing two bedrooms with in total nine beds, a sitting room with a couch, a kitchen and appropriate toilet facilities and bathroom with shower. The facility is close to Lake Victoria and is fenced with shrubs that provide it with a green environment.



There are various kinds of trees and flowers on the compound and also lots of room for children to play. We are also using the compound for developing a kitchen garden comprising of vegetable and few other assorted crops. There is also a bore hole providing the facility with water.



 


 

The volunteers are accommodated in a separate volunteer house in a five minutes walking distance. For more information about this house, click here.
