KIVIDEA activities benefit primarily two groups:
Children from the age of 4 – 14, with special concern for orphans and children living under difficult circumstances (most vulnerable children);
Youth and adolescents aged 15 – 30 in school and out-of school, in rural and urban settings.
KIVIDEA helps children through a nursery centre where children living under difficult circumstances are cared for. The children attend pre-school classes, receive daily meals and enjoy other recreational (games & play) activities. The children are selected through street and other community leaders (religious, associations and other people). A program to support Most Vulnerable Children (MVC) was introduced in 2012 and currently support 60 children in 6 wards. This program also builds the capacity of local ward MVC committees to provide care and support to the children and their families.
Youth and adolescents participate in KIVIDEA through local teams of peer educators in target wards/villages who mobilize and educate other youth in their areas, and help initiate and manage you-led actions/initiatives which Kividea supports. Youth participate in the initiation, planning and implementation of activities at the youth main center in Kigoma town, and in their village teams. Currently KIVIDEA is active in three rural wards and villages of Ilagala, Nguruka, Kazuramimba and Nyanganga; and all 19 wards of Kigoma-Ujiji Municipality.
