Tjeko is a SOCIAL-PROFIT organization that is committed to making children a real child. Through sports, games and fun we help them develop into more resilient adults.
Activities of Tjeko Africa
At primary schools in Africa we are active with a series of teaching programs “The Power of Imagination and Creativity” . The Tjeko LIVE school program is supported by locally trained game and communication specialists. They visit schools and give them a series of lessons and activities. In addition, they offer teachers and childcare workers special workshops.
Tjeko not only wants to give people something, but also equips them. We consciously collaborate with organizations and individuals on site. Through the Tjeko Academy, young adults in Africa are trained to lead the Fun Fair. They receive training in, among other things, child work, leadership, presentation and communication. In addition, Tjeko encourages them to work constructively on their future, and provides them with useful tools for this.The Tjeko Academy is primarily intended to train skilled and enthusiastic supervisors. The young adults take the acquired knowledge and skills with them and also benefit from it outside the Fun Fair.
Tjeko fun village in Nyenga is the home of Tjeko where children celebrate childhood. We host events like kids parties, camping, and a play area equipped with all tjeko play items. It is the base where all Tjeko activities like the Tjeko academy where youths are imparted with skills like personal development and child focused edutainment and Tjeko fun fair where we celebrate childhood with children from different backgrounds for two weeks.As Fun village, we are glad that this year we are hosting the Tjeko fun festival instead of the tjeko fun fair which will run from 17th November to 1st january 2023.All in all the fun village is the center of all Tjeko events and income generating products.
Tjeko Fun Services is the Social Enterprise part of Tjeko. Our local team rents out the Tjeko Fun materials and sets off for parties and events. With the rental of the materials, income is generated to pay for the Tjeko activities.
The goal is that every team grows towards more financial self-reliance.
Tjeko Connect is our channel to the outside world. This includes Tjeko Radio; a weekly children’s program on Saturday afternoons. With this we reach more than 4 million households! The one-hour program is packed with games, music, stories and tips for parents and care-givers!
Our networkers also fall under Tjeko Connect. They are in constant contact with authorities, school boards, networks and those who ensure the healthy development of children.
Activities of Tjeko Netherlands
Tjeko LIVE Netherlands is a versatile primary school project that consists of various components:
- A great show by Tjeko employees
- Beautiful teaching materials developed by Tjeko (in collaboration with external experts)
- A big fun (d) raiser, entirely in the style of the Ugandan Tjeko Fun Fair
Tjeko LIVE is an educational and social development-oriented project that children enjoy. At the same time, this is one of our most valuable ways of fundraising.
