Our Mission

Education as a solution and family support.

Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty per family by providing the opportunity of consistent and ongoing educational support to children in Mwanza, Tanzania.

Our Story

It started with a promise.

Little Paths Australia was formed in 2009 by Kate Bowyer after a volunteer trip to Tanzania. After witnessing first-hand the struggles that children and families overcame every single day, Kate decided that she would start Little Paths and create positive change that acknowledged the importance of family in every child’s life.

Our People

Our amazing team are working day-in day-out to achieve our mission.
We have experts in Australia, and also social welfare officers located in Mwanza. As a team, we’re dedicated to making a change.

Our Impact

Maximum impact, minimum interference.

We want to acknowledge, encourage and support the further development of skills already held by the children and the families we work with.  We want to provide an opportunity and then be led by the children and their families themselves.
