food and supplies

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 part of health.


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!

 

 


 

 


​Grateful thanks to Mary Rose Rodriguez and her friends for their generous donation of $274 for John Paul Rehabilitation Center. With this donation mats for the new PT room will be purchased. We are so grateful to Mary Rose for her continued dedication to our projects in Tanzania. Here is a photo of Mary Rose on her trip to Tanzania with us in 2017. 



Our projects

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.

Education

An education can change a life! Maasai 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.

This year we lost one of our biggest sponsors. Mr. Tebbens was the first supporter of the Seeds of Hope race and let us use electricity from the Tebbens Steel building on Canal Street. Without him the race would not have been held. He always kept up with our progress in Tanzania and provided financial support for our water projects there. God bless you and keep you, Mr. Tebbens. You have made far reaching impacts locally and globally.
