During the years we have been more and more convinced that we have to be personally involved to contribute and support the children’s care and education. We are highly driven by Albert Einstein’s quote: “Give back to the world at least what you’ve received”. We will be proud to have given a (better) future to some children and additionally educate the local community to take care of their children. As a side benefit 2care2share provides work to some adults in the community.
One of the key elements was also that our future projects must be driven by local people.
We have discussed with Simon and Mary about the situation of children in Arusha and more specifically for the orphans.
Simon had an old house on his land that could be used as a first step to create an orphanage.
We realized that we had found the project we were looking for and decided to support the orphans in need in Arusha region, Tanzania. That was the start of 2care2share.
Building a better future for orphans in Tanzania, providing care and education
Mette and Jean-Philippe
With several travels to Tanzania we have fallen in love with the country and its people. However, even if we have witnessed improvements in the country over the years, the level of poverty remains high. Not all children have the chance to get a proper education, which is the key to build a better future. In January 2017 we went back on Kilimanjaro, and connected very well with Mr.Simon Mwamba. We discussed intensively, how to make a difference.
Mary and Simon
Simon and Mary grewup in Tanzania. Knowing education is key. They are committed to making a better future for the children in Tanzania. They believe if 2care2share can succeed in the community, they hope, it spreads. They are dedicated to change the future of the children, who otherwise had a limited future.
