Great day for the race!
For the first time in 2 years we held our 5K/10K Race on Sunday November 7th, 2021 in Neville Park, Center Moriches LIVE! Thank you for all the support! We had a record number of runners and walkers this year. Our race sponsors supported us unlike another year! Grateful thanks to Roanoke Sand and Gravel, Hampton Coffee, olish's, Pete's Bagels, Bagels N Brunch and WHB Brewery for providing coffee, food and prizes. GRATEFUL THANKS TO OUR RACE DIRECTORS KARL AND DEBBIE HIMMELMANN AND TO ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS! THIS WOULD BE AN IMPOSSIBLE TASK WITHOUT YOU ALL. Grateful thanks to elite feats for timing our race this year! A beautiful day was had by all for a great cause!
These last 18 months have been a struggle for so many. We have lost many dear ones to COVID 19- so many family members and friends. One of our most precious friends, Anna Mollel, lost her life to COVID on August 18th. I met Anna on my first trip to Tanzania in 2006. I can say she is like a sister to me. We have worked hand in hand the last 15 years to promote the rights of all children to have access to education. Her story can be found by going to the Education page and by clicking this link ...

Our prayers are with her family in Tanzania. We pray that her school will continue as we work toward a time when we can say this pandemic is behind us. In the meantime, we pray for our friends in Tanzania and for all the children she has been so devoted to. COVID continues to wreak havoc with the economy in Tanzania with families struggling to provide even the barest necessities of life for their families; things like food, water and medical treatment. People have been left destitute and hungry. Donations of $30 for Anna's handmade clothes will directly support her school, Engilang'et Primary. For more information you can donate on the website and leave your mailing address so your cloth can be shipped to you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

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.

A Tribute to a Very Special Volunteer * Terry Bennett
Gifting Program...Want to give a gift in honor of a loved one that will mean the world to someone?
For the last 5 years Terry has unselfishly run yoga classes for her group called Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Help Others and that is just what they have done. Last year this fine group raised enough to send 4 students to school. The Mulikozi Family children were able to attend school even though their father had lost his job and was barely able to put food on the table. Terry's donation created an opportunity that few people get. The Mulikozi family is forever grateful.
In September 2021 Terry and her group donated $1517 to our cause in order to honor their friend, Vineeta Harkin, who passed away from breast cancer in 2020. Vineeta was a special part of Terry's Yoga class. Her kind heart and light will live on through the work of her friends that reach out and help others in desperate need. We are eternally grateful.
Our annual auction was postponed due to COVID and our annual race was virtual in 2020. Masks for Education and HOPE bracelets helped us raise funds and our supporters helped keep our charity going!. This year our 5K/10K HOPE RUN will be held LIVE on Nov. 7th.
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!
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.

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.
