The children at EngaliL'et Primary School celebrate World Read Aloud Day and learn about Malala, Nobel Peace Prize winner who encourages girls to go to school and get an education. The third graders of Eastport Elementary School celebrated with them in a "School to School" connection that day.

Our vision...

​Damas attends preschool and so does Faith.

Robert is studying to get his Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering 

Seeds of Hope Tanzania is an organization dedicated to serving the needs of the poorest of the poor in Tanzania East Africa.

We provide 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.

Debi Mazura, founder, taught third grade at Eastport Elementary. For years she involved her students with "real life" learning by sharing the things she experienced in Africa. Each year the students participated in a Service Learning Project to encourage and help children half a world away. Sometimes the students collected clothing or school supplies to send. One year they raised funds for irrigation kits and solar lanterns. This year they helped raise funds to finish a school!

Angel attends St. Theresa's Secondary School for Girls and Pennina is finishing school for tailoring at a Vocational Secondary School.

Deo is going to college ! He begins his first year in October at Singeda College! This is the young man we flew to India in 2013 for open heart surgery . He is a miracle!
