Orphans Foundation Fund Video

This video was made awhile ago and gives a brief overview of the mission of Orphans Foundation Fund and projects we engage ourselves with here in Tanzania.

Some updates to note are the water found at Kikatiti turned out to be seasonal, so we are again looking for either a constant potable source or to purchase another plot of land for the project. The rehabilitation of the old USAID water system is now our hope for Lengast village, but it will be costly to repair and maintain. There are so many needs here in Tanzania, so if you can donate to help these people you would literally be saving lives! If you are in the US or Canada please contact Dr. James Lace, or if you are in Tanzania contact Gosberth Baitwa.

With the successful completion of the first year of the Orphans Foundation Fund / CORDAID Street Children Project we have set out with the new recruitment for this year. After the long and careful process of meeting with the children on the streets and doing interviews, we have narrowed down those who are interested in participating in the life changing program. Today we met with a large group to discuss the first stage of moving into the dormitories at Chiswea this coming week. The street children are hopeful and eager to begin the work of transforming their lives into mature responsible adults. The talk has reached the streets that  Orphans Foundation Fund / CORDAID have a program, that with effort, training, and hard work leads to a future of hope.

A Day for Happiness

The additions to the Orphans Foundation Fund Njiro property are looking great. With each passing day the construction gets closer to completion. Today we watched the brick layer finishing up to where the roof will be built. We also met with the metal workers about the design of the new gate and security bars. One of the youngest helpers on the site was Happiness, she is an exceptionally bright girl who was selected to enter Form 1 (1st year of High school) because her grades were so good! But her father left the family and she needs to support her mother at least until she can raise enough to pay the $250 tuition for her first year of High school. We are looking for a sponsor for Happiness, if you’re touched by her situation and would like to help please contact us.
