Pippi House: Help a sister out

Greetings from Tanzania my friends! I have spent the last four months working with Pippi House Foundation, a safe house for girls, in Arusha, Tanzania. Many of the ladies who come to Pippi were raped, abused, and neglected, have suffered homelessness, forced marriage, unplanned pregnancy, and STDs. With limited resources, a modest home, and many generous volunteers, Pippi provides these young women a warm bed, education, counseling, and a loving community.

Pippi Foundation is currently struggling to support 20 girls and their 4 young children. My family and friends have helped me reach and surpass my fundraising goal of $2,600 USD to cover Pippi's rent for one year. I am feeling more inspired and motivated than ever to keep this going!
Please join me in supporting these remarkable young women by helping to secure the future of Pippi House Foundation.
