Vision: OFF envisions a society where children and other vulnerable groups have access to quality social services and income opportunities. Mission : Our mission is to support communities to realise the health, education and economic potentials by creating and engaging in the provision of health care, education, training and skills building and help youth to access income opportunities. Programme intervention: Since its establishment in 2002 Orphans Foundation Fund has worked and continues to work with key individual donors from Tanzania, USA and Europe.  With generous support from individuals and organizations, OFF has undertaken several community projects. Our past projects range from supporting vulnerable individuals, families and groups.
