This GoFundMe is set up by volunteers (Suzanne, Amber, Myrthe, Youssef, Ziti, Sanne, and Anna) and two social workers (Suedi and Prisca) of the Tuleeni Orphanage in a small village called Uru, Tanzania, Africa.
‘FutUru’ is a project with the goal to empower women and the youth of Uru. Currently, the inhabitants of Uru are financially struggling to even fulfill basic needs, such as access to education for children.
Females of Uru experience hardships as they are usually the sole responsible for providing for their entire family.
For example, Mama Angela is a 49-year-old woman who lives with her husband that does not contribute to the family. She takes care of 6 children on her own. Mama Angela used to sell fish on the streets, but her business collapsed due to a sudden increase in prices. She only needs a bucket of fish to restart her business and improve the living conditions of her children.
Mama Angela is just one of many villagers that experience hardships. You can check our Instagram @FutUru_Tanzania for more personal stories of the women and youth, and to learn more about the project and its progress.
Through FutUru, we provide the females and youth of Uru a second chance in life to attend (higher) education or open up a local business. The money collected through this GoFundMe will be used to provide an interest-free loan system with starting capital and financial consultancy.
The Tuleeni Orphanage oversees the system and distributes the capital to villagers of Uru. The chosen villagers either already have the skills needed or showcase high potential of acquiring the competence to start a successful business. After the local business generates profit, the villagers pay back the loan, and the money returned will later be used to support the next villagers.
FutUru opens doors for Uru's villagers to start their own business and break free from poverty. With your donation, FutUru has the potential to improve life in Uru for all future generations.
