DDN26.IMG 2948Our Intention: Tumaini (Hope)

Children suffer from poverty, nutritional deficiencies, health issues, and inadequate housing. Some are orphans. Family, villagers and the Sisters try to provide the best care possible for the little ones. Education is the way out of poverty. Education is hope. Tumaini.

How FOI Helps

The opportunity to build a school in Sumbawanga, TZ presented itself and Friends of Imiliwaha responded generously! Sister Afra directed the effort locally, working with contractors and suppliers. Her FOI friends pursued resources in the U.S.

Adequately supplied and equipped classrooms with trained teachers will allow more children to receive education. FOI will explore how limited resources can be directed to best strengthen the educational efforts of the Sisters. 

Sister Afra has extensive training and ability to ensure that the children receive the best education possible. FOI will support her efforts to enhance the schools so children receive a quality education.
