About Gabriella


Our values and principles

The Gabriella’s provision of services to children and families is based on the following values and principles:

  • All children have the right to quality early intervention services which facilitate their social, emotional, cognitive and physical development

  • Services will be child focused, strength-based, child centered and family directed.

  • Services will promote the health, well-being and safety of children and their families

  • Services will complement the family; honouring each family’s cultural, socio-economic and personal uniqueness and supporting them in meeting their responsibilities to their children.

  • Services  will be accessible, inclusive, evaluated and evidence-based

  • Services will be developed within the framework of community partnerships and professional competencies.

  • Community events and activities will be community-based and responsive to the changing needs of children and their families.

The Gabriella centre has operated continuously since 2009 and provides assessments, treatment, education and assistance to children with special needs and their families.


Over 6000 children and their families from all over Tanzania and beyond received services from the Gabriella since its inception.
