Leading children step by step into a good future

At the centre of our work is the orphanage, the Marifi Children’s Home which aims to give traumatized orphans and street children a loving and safe home. We want to provide access to good education, and support children in their development so that they can experience a healthy, happy and safe childhood.

There are an estimated 1,300,000 AIDS orphans in Tanzania who have lost one or both parents to HIV. Malaria, respiratory diseases and diarrhea are still a common cause of death in Tanzania. There is a lack of hospitals as well as doctors. According to the UN Development Report, Tanzania is taking the first steps towards improvement. Nevertheless, only a small part of the population has been able to benefit from the country’s recent upswing.

What started in 2013 with the purchase of a plot of land near Morogoro has now grown step by step into a project that:
