MCCC was established back in 1969 as a missionary response to children in crisis. For nearly five decades it has been reaching out to support children, youth and families who find themselves in extreme and difficult circumstances in northern Tanzania. It's mission has always been shaped by a compassionate response to those in distress or danger, offering open arms of welcome and protection; offering the open arms of God’s love to those who need it.

Over the years the Lord Jesus Christ has inspired us to express God's love in different ways:

1. Meeting the emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual needs of children;
2. Providing community support programmes for needy families;
3. Maximising access to education for all our children;
4. Offering holidays and camps for the children we support;
5. Maintaining a context of Christian nurture and love.

MCCC is our family, it's our work and it's our passion - Making Children Count for Christ.
