Charity for “Kili Hope” Children’s Center Tanzania

[Campaign Update on November 7th, 2020] 
The campaign target has been adjusted to EUR 38,000. This covers the operational costs for 2021 as well as the budget for the project “Farming for Hope”, aimed at bringing sustainability to the food supply of the “Kili Hope Children’s Center” by establishing a small-scale farm.

[“Farming for Hope” Project Objectives]

1. to ensure constant supply of food, vegetables and fruits to the Kili Hope children’s center.
2. to raise the initial invested capital within 5 years in order to reinvest the earnings in a similar project in nature/size, broadening the scope of social impact in the local community without dependency on external investors/donors.

The project is being developed in partnership with ZARA CHARITY, a Tanzanian non-profit organization that supports vulnerable groups by promoting sustainable tourism in the region. While the charity counts with a well-established local network, essential skills, and experience in farming projects, it lacks the necessary capital to invest in the Kili Hope children’s center.

[The WHY] 

Your donation will impact the future of 90 children in Africa by providing them food, shelter and education for a whole year. In doing this, we will gain time to work on self-sustaining ideas for the community while not losing any child! - In other words, you are saving lives and creating a new future.


A vunerable group in any society, children represent a huge challenge in Tanzania. The number of orphans in some rural areas is higher due to parents dying from HIV-related health complications and road accidents. Poverty and the lack of stable educational systems lead children to the streets, where they spend their days roaming around, avoiding school, and are often victims of abuse, rape or death due to malnutrition.
To make things more complicated, state-funded orphanages are often led by corrupt owners, and the investments take too long or never really reach the children and their families.

[The GOAL]

The goal is to raise 6,000 EUROS to cover ONE YEAR of costs for running ONE CHILDREN'S CENTER located in Pasua, Moshi district, Northern Tanzania. The center looks after 90 CHILDREN (46 girls and 44 boys), and depends on benefactors to cover these monthly costs: 

   50 EUR - - -  Rent of a space in a building, also used as classroom
100 EUR - - - School supplies
125 EUR - - - Food supplies
225 EUR - - - Fixed Staff Costs (teacher, matron and cook)
500 EUR / month - - - TOTAL




Children's Centers led by social entrepreneurs and funded by donations and sponsorships represent a breathe of HOPE for kids in the region. These centers offer:

- Classrooms and a place for the children to spend their days
- Support from educators and volunteers
- Breakfast porridge and lunch
- Sports activities
- Personal and dental hygiene orientation
- Home-aid program with distribution of food, soap, cooking oil, etc.


As a travel enthusiast, my exposure to contrasting realities around the world made me develop a strong sense of accountability for bringing about positive impact to less fortunate communities - especially in developing countries.

This is why in the last half a decade, I started to combine tourism with opportunities to interact and support some local communities, families and children.

After having run privately-funded efforts in Kenya, Ethiopia and Seychelles, I felt motivated to take one step further and fundraise among family, friends and colleagues to support such initiatives.

This leads to 2018, when my first fundraising for charity campaign was successfully run and completed. 100% of the funds were invested in the welfare of a group of 68 children in the community of Santa Maria in the Island of Cape Verde. It all went towards a children's library as well as food supplies and clothing for the kids. (For more details: )

In December 2019, my partner and I will be on a private trip to Tanzania. And this is our invitation to embark in this journey and help us leave a positive footprint in the lives of these children in need. Can we count on you?


Reports about the development of this campaign will be published on this site as well as via my Facebook and LinkedIn pages. After project completion, a complete report of the finances will be made available publicly. For more detailed inquiries, I can be contacted anytime.

Thanks for trusting me to be your ambassador in this journey,
