The Ebenezer orphanage situated in Maji Ya Chai – Arusha, Tanzanie
With the help of all our members, we have built an orphanage that can welcome up to 35 children. Built on two floors on the same land as the day care center, these children live near the director of the orphanage, Julieth and are supervised by two additional social workers.
The orphanage has 40 beds, 4 showers, 8 bathrooms, a kitchen, furnitures, one room dedicated to international volunteers, a permanent water system, solar panels and a large garden! The objective of the Center is to become an empowered, self-sufficient and independent structure that contributes to the community at large.
For this project, we decided to work locally with Julieth Kivuyo, an incredibly dedicated woman, that aspired to build a new infrastructure for orphans. We decided to support that idea by designing a project integrated within system: a day care, small shops, a garden and a small farm.
