                   About us...

Seeds of Hope Tanzania was established in 2006 after Debi Mazura, a New York elementary school teacher, returned from a trip to Tanzania where she witnessed poverty and famine beyond explanation.  Upon her return, many friends, co-workers , local merchants and businesses supported her efforts to make Seeds of Hope Tanzania a reality.  During the last 10 years, this dedicated group has raised money to build a well, water cisterns, homes, a school, a church and provided funds for food, medical supplies, surgeries and school fees for more than 50 children. 
Seeds of Hope Tanzania provides financial support for children, families and communities to overcome extreme poverty, with a particular focus on orphaned children there. We provide opportunities for growth through education and support children with school fees from primary school through university. We believe in providing micro financing opportunities to help people become self sustaining in  order to break the cycle of poverty.

Thank you for being one of the seeds that helps us grow!
