Sleeping with us will help our community

Thanks to generous donations from Europe, but especially from Switzerland, we were able to complete the upper floor of the orphanage in 2019.  Four small double rooms have been available there since December 2019. Our hostel is small but fine. We do not want mass tourism and we want to take care of our guests and volunteers individually.

100% of the hostel's income goes to the orphanage.

The current monthly costs in the orphanage consist of the purchase of food, the cost of water and electricity and the wages of the employees in the orphanage and hostel. We don't just want to help the children and their families. We also have a responsibility towards the employees. They support their own families with their wages, which they receive from us. Money is also needed for hygiene products and repairs. Various renovations such as the enlargement of the kitchen and a beautiful garden are planned.

Furthermore, we have several plans for the future: we would like to buy a piece of land on which we can build our own school and boarding school. A small care clinic would also be planned.
Good education and medical care is important and unfortunately not possible for the whole population at the moment. 

You can see here other ways to help us grow and get strong for the future.

Pole pole (slowly, slowly) is called in Africa. This is how we go step by step.

Travel and discover

On weekends we also offer excursions to the surrounding area around Arusha.

If you have a little more time, it is also worth a safari to one of the numerous national parks in northern Tanzania: Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara or Ngorongoro Crater, as well as the Serengeti are just a few hours' drive away. Also an ascent to the "roof of Africa", the Kilimanjaro is feasible, if you bring enough time for the preparation. For a variety of safaris, we work with a local safari provider who puts together a tour with one or more nights, according to your wishes and measures.
