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...

Ibrahim goes to St. Stephen's Secondary School

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!

We do this by making sure that the basic human needs of water, food, shelter and care are all in place. Getting an education is the most important gift we can give and so can you. Currently we support more than 10 students going on to college, secondary school or vocational training. In 2017 that number will rise to 14 children .
