Simon comes from the very south of Tanzania. He and his wife Esther have been with us since the start of 2015 and have settled in quickly. They are both our new volunteer foster parents and have two children themselves. They are responsible for the boys in our first orphanage.
Esther is our heart for the little children, and lives with them in the orphanage. She sees all these children as her own.
Furaha is from our orphanage and living happily externally. She knows our organisation better than anyone and our standards of care, upbringing and welfare.
With Mirjam, our teacher from Zimbabwe, the team for running the kindergarden is complete. This will also always be supplemented by our year interns from Germany.
Anti-corruption manager and partner of Streetkids International. Uswege has been a friend from the beginning; he is experienced, honest and above all reliable – a virtue seldom found in the area.
Director of our partner organisation YWAM (Youth With A Mission) and partner of Streetkids International. He and his wife Beate are responsible for running the Dayspring Primary School and the training and production workshop.
Farmer and Streetkids International’s partner, as well as husband to Suzi and father to four. He is helping us with the set up and expansion of the farm and the goat breeding.
Helen and Eivind are from Norway. They have been living in Tanzania for seven years. They emigrated and are realising their dream of a better life. They have had two children in Tanzania.
Together they run Paka Adventures (http://www.pakaadventures.com)as well as a little beach lodge in the south of Dar es Salaam. They provide for all price ranges, as is common practice in the Tanzanian tourist industry. They provide everything special – whether it’s a safari trip by car, a family trip, animals, adventure or pure nature, or even cross-border trip. The only thing you need is a ticket from us to Tanzania.
What’s more, 5% of proceeds to go to support our local projects.
We are involved in the poorer south of the country, through supporting the development of our partner school in Mtwara – together with our partners KLB, the Community Association Kanisa La Biblia Tanzania, who are the owners and operators of the school.
Together with interior architect Kirsten Wilms of Innenarchitekturbüro Wilms (http://www.wilms-innenarchitektur.de), we founded the Schulen helfen Schulen initiative.
For this we are constantly looking for schools in Germany who would like to take on a sponsorship with our schools in Tanzania.
