In addition to providing legal guardianship for the children that call Rift Valley Children’s Village home, TCF also works to promote the well-being of all children and address the problem of systemic poverty by attacking its root causes from all sides. We provide access to high-quality education, free healthcare, and business trainings and loans for the entire community.
