Solar pump system and water filtration and purification system (necessary to rid the water of excess fluoride) $3,500.                                                                                                              

The Tuition Project- support one of the children we send to school Pre-K to university.

Earlier in 2020 the Barkers donated funds for our Water for All Campaign which will build a well in a village of 750 people near St. Joseph's Church. We broke ground in December 2020. We are working with a water company is Arusha to complete the project. Currently we have large sim tanks to act as water cisterns in the meantime. Each sim tank holds 40,000 liters of water which can supply the village for about 2 months in times of drought.

Masks for Education  ***  Go Fund Me Charity Campaign

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Barker Families. They have, in many cases, single handedly kept of our work in Tanzania going. Especially during this pandemic time of COVID 19, and without our fundraisers to continue our work, I thought the life of our charity would be short. Jim and Beth Barker recently donated $5000 which will help keep our 60 plus children in school and help us run our small school, St. Rose Academy. At school children can be educated and get 2 meals a day, which is most likely the only food they will have that day to fill their bellies. Jim, Beth, Frank and Dolores- Thank you for your ongoing effort to make a huge impact on the world! We are so grateful for your BIG hearts!

Grateful Hearts

An education can change a life and that's what Seeds of Hope Tanzania is doing for our children in Africa. Our goal is to give each child the opportunity to go to school by providing uniforms and school fees. We support more than 50 students who range in age from PreK to University level with an annual budget of 12K. 
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to hold our annual in person fundraisers, so we are having an online fundraiser to assure our kids in Tanzania a seat in the classroom and 2 meals, which may be the only food they get that day.  Our neck sleeve masks with the Seeds of Hope Tanzania logo will help support our children and education programs in Tanzania.
                           Masks come in black, grey and white.

             Made of comfortable, stretchable, breathable polyester. 
1 Mask: $20              2 Masks: $35              3 Masks: $48

It costs $16 a month for each child to be educated at St. Rose Academy. The school fees cover the teacher salaries and provides 2 meals a day for each student. Those 2 meals are most likely their only meals for the day. When we began DREAM BIG it was our HOPE to encourage people to choose a child to sponsor at St. Rose. So far we have 15 people who committed $16 per month donation so a child has a chance to attend school. we are still in need of more sponsors. If this idea touches your heart, please click the donate button and make a reoccurring monthly donation of $16 . To continue my grandchildren's dream, we support a young woman in Tanzania to make HOPE bracelets like the one below. The sale of these bracelets at $35 each help children at St. Rose Academy. You can go to the donate button to make you one time donation or if you choose, you can sponsor a new child and  We’ll send you a HOPE bracelet and a thank you note for your donation.

“Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. ​Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow”. Isaiah 1:17

My grandchildren, Izabella, Olivia, and Cole, were so touched by the stories of  children who just want a chance to go to school, that they created “DREAM BIG”, an idea that supports school fees for children who have never been to school. They designed, made and sold bracelets and raised more than $100 in one day to support the education of children in Olkokola. Our goal was to raise $305 to buy school uniforms for 26 new children to attend St. Rose Academy which we did! 26 children between the ages of 3-7 received new uniforms and books so that they could begin school in January 2020. I am so proud of them! Their family supports one of the children, Dyness, to attend school at St. Rose Academy.
