Leading children step by step into a good future
At the centre of our work is the orphanage, theMarifi 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:
Provides a livable future for children in one of the poorest regions of the world.
Orphans are given a “family” in which they are loved, respected, encouraged and protected.
Helping children grow up to be fun-loving, independent and responsible people.
