Seeds of Hope Tanzania is dedicated to providing financial support to children, families and communities of Tanzania, East Africa, to overcome extreme poverty, with a particular focus on orphaned children there. Our focus lies on community efforts, including small-scale construction projects, shelter, food aid, community awareness, medical assistance and educational opportunities. We firmly believe it takes a village to raise a child and we work closely with our friends in Arusha, Tanzania to accomplish our mission!
Maintaining healthy, happy environments is an important, and often neglected part of aid work. We work with local community organizers closely. Take a look at past and present projects to see how you can help.

An education can change a life! Masaai girls are frequently forced into marriage by the age of 14. Our goal is to give children an opportunity to go to school by providing things like uniforms and school fees from elementary school through high school.
Engalaoni Well Update
It has been a difficult 2 months in Engalaoni. Lack of food and water has left people in a desperate situation. We recently sent 50 bags a corn to help the people through this month. The well that we thought would be done by the onset of the rainy season has hit a snag. World Serve International, the company building our well, dug to 300 feet hoping to hit a reliable aquifer. Unfortunately, that did not happen. We were told that this is the case for 30% of the wells drilled in Tanzania. That doesn't mean we will give up! But for now, we must make a plan for the people of Engalaoni to have water during the dry months of July and August. Our plan is to set up a "catch system" for the collection of rainwater. We have purchased 4 10,000 liter tanks and will set them up with a gutter system attached to St. Joseph's Church, which has been a lifeline, spiritually and physically for the more than 750 people that live in and around the village.
The 2 photos below show the miracles that can take place. In 2015 the people of Engalaoni wanted to build a church...the picture on the left shows the start of it. We took this photo with some of our friends when we were on a trip to Tanzania.Within 18 months, through the generosity of sponsors, we were able to help the people of Engalaoni realize their dream of a new church, the new St. Joseph's. Now let's all pray that the water collection project will be successful and that we can finish it before the rainy season begins. Keep our future well project in your prayers , too!
To do great work, you need tools. Classrooms school supplies and books. Empty stomachs hurt. They break concentration and make the future seem impossible. Providing food and water is essential to creating health.
