Janada L. Batchelor Foundation Charity Profile

What started as a mission to rescue abandoned and abused girls grew into a holistic approach to alleviating extreme rural poverty. JBFC’s four-pronged strategy includes providing a safe home for girls, quality primary, secondary, and vocational education to both boys and girls, access to health care, and rural economic development through the JBFC farm. Gates started the Joseph & Mary Primary School in 2010. It now enrolls more than 300 primary and secondary students. To make sure empty stomachs don’t distract hungry minds, Joseph & Mary students receive two meals a day, furnished by the JBFC farm. The organization grows rice, beans, a variety of produce and raises livestock to not only feed our students, but also act as a source of income for the organization. JBFC is also working with the Tanzanian government to provide its students and neighbors with access to quality healthcare. JBFC promotes sustainable development, which includes training our girls and students to be able to provide for themselves in the future. And that philosophy extends to the JBFC campus itself. Our model is built on self-sustainability with each campus providing a source of income for its own operations, which insures financial independence while maintaining the local community’s investment in the organization. We believe this model will nurture, educate, and empower impoverished children, who will grow into future leaders of their society. JBFC Provides: Immediate relief services for abandoned and abused girls Quality primary, secondary and vocational education for community children Rural access to healthcare Farm and Livestock Education & Commerce Sustainable water and energy solutions Rural Job Creation

Janada L. Batchelor Foundation Volunteer Information

It was volunteerism that originally brought JBFC Founder and Executive Director Chris Gates to Tanzania. And it was his summers working with a boy’s home in Mwanza, Tanzania that inspired him to start JBFC. That’s why JBFC welcomes volunteers throughout the year to our Kitongo campus. We have high schools across the country that send groups of students every summer, but we also have adults in groups or flying solo that come volunteer. From painting dorms to laying rock foundations and tutoring children in Swahili to helping harvest crops, your experience at JBFC can be tailored to your interests. Please check out our Volunteer Handbook for more details. If you have questions or would like to book a trip, please contact us. If you've visited JBFC's campus in Tanzania and would like to help raise awareness about our organization by becoming a JBFC Ambassador
