Why Tanzania?

Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world.  In our founding year it was ranked 162nd out of 177 countries on the UNDP Human Development Index. Canada was ranked #3.  This index references quality of life, life expectancy, standards of living, education, etc.

Visit our site and meet our children . . . better yet, visit us in Tanzania and meet them in person.  We offer a volunteer experience program where you can work with our children, and/or within the community making a difference.  Further, one of our own Tumaini graduates will arrange your  safari to the Serengeti or one of our other spectacular national parks, or a climbing expedition up Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain!

With Hope all things are Possible”
