“To empower orphans and vulnerable children through the provision of services such as medical care, education, love, and all necessary children need to return hope and build a better future for the children.”
We created this organization to overcome problems left to the children after their parents died or don’t have the ability to take care of their children, due to poverty. In Tanzania, many children were left helpless because no one could stand and look after them. Our main objective is to encourage, give hope, and care in order to create a better future for these children.
We believe in caring for not only those who don’t have parents but also the very needy ones who have missed care of their parents for one reason or another.
In Tanzania, there are approximately 4 million children under 14 who are not appropriately cared for. (the country has a total population of over 50 million people). A big part of these children are orphans, many of which have lost their parents or were left helpless due to poverty. Even if the children still have both parents, they often left their homes because of extreme poverty or domestic violence, which is often caused by the parent’s alcoholism or drug abuse, or because of being victims of witchcraft.
Many of these children live on the streets, trying to make a living by begging, stealing, and doing other bad behavior activities. These children can be seen wearing tattered cloth, walking alone, and sleeping in house entrances or primitive self-made shelters. Some of the children who don’t have a family don’t actually live on the streets, but with relatives or host families, having to stand behind the host families’ own children in terms of nutrition, accommodation, and education. They find themselves in the lowest position in society, often being the target of physical violence, humiliation, and sexual abuse.
Mama Faraji was a teacher at a local primary school grew up as an orphan herself. During her life, she realized that education truly is the key to success. Mama Faraji is an inspiration to anyone that has the chance to meet her. She always has a smile on her face and is eager to help anyone she knows. Mama Faraji (Executive Director and Founder of Tuleeni Home) was staying with the Orphans since 2001 in her home but later in 2006, she decides to start an Orphanage after observing that the number of Orphans in her street increase so the possible way to help them is to keep them in the same area and make them live as a family. The reason that pushes her to establish the orphanage was to reduce the problems left to the children after their parents died.
