Bigger Heart Project – Helping Tanzanian Children

No Comments Charity, Current News

A recently started project is creating waves of colour wherever it goes. The Bigger Heart Project was recently started by a local businesswoman, Layla Yahya. The main aim of the project is to raise cash in order to buy educational support tools as well as toys, clothes and other similar items for the benefit of young people who are living in desperate situations in Zanzibar. A showcase event was held at the St Thomas Church Hall which attracted many artists who displayed their artefacts and sold them to raise the money for the project. The project expects to tackle many educational and health issues facing young people in Zanzibar. Mrs Yahya is no stranger to Zanzibar and she has herself witnessed the plight of young people there. This was the driving force which gave her the incentive to start the project. She has already taken some of these goods to the country in the past and expects that with the support of people from this area she will be able to enhance the project further.
