Share Tanzania: A Beacon of Hope at the Foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro
Located amidst the picturesque foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, Share Tanzania has been transforming lives since its inception in 2014. Rising from modest beginnings, the initiative has become a beacon of hope and a testament to the power of community, love, and shared responsibility.
The ethos of Share Tanzania resonates deeply with our values at Taqtik Health. We firmly believe that addressing challenges – whether in healthcare or daily life – requires a culture of sharing: sharing resources, expertise, love, and innovative ideas.
Share Tanzania’s mission statement encapsulates this belief: "To ensure children in crisis find a safe and loving home." The organization primarily focuses on keeping Tanzanian children with their families. With their children's fund supporting over a thousand children, this mission is indeed being realized, and we're honored to be part of this journey.
The heart of Share Tanzania is its founder, John. After witnessing the harsh realities faced by children in Uchira in 2013, John, a UK native, was driven to take action. Many children in the region were subjected to hard labor in mines, quarries, and fields, earning a pittance. Some only managed to afford the basic necessities. Moreover, numerous bright children were unable to attend school because of financial constraints.
Share Tanzania initially started with a fund that catered to education, housing, and medical care. As the organization grew, it became a sanctuary for homeless or orphaned children who couldn’t find a suitable guardian or family. This need gave birth to the Featherstale Children's Village and Angels Gate Home, which today serves as a home and family to over 100 precious children.
John's dedication was evident when he chose to revive a previously failed NGO he had volunteered with. Within a year, 111 children were sponsored globally, providing them with education, meals, clothing, and medical care. Furthermore, housing was facilitated in Uchira, whether rented or purpose-built.
Many of these children, once subjected to child labor, were reintroduced to the joys and innocence of childhood. As the needs grew, a children's village was established, followed by a home for street-involved children.
Beyond human welfare, Share Tanzania also took steps to cater to the local canine population through the Kilimanjaro Animal Rescue shelter.
At Taqtik Health (as monthly gold sponsors), we're deeply inspired by Share Tanzania's work and are committed to amplifying their efforts. By supporting such initiatives, we strive to contribute to a world where every individual, regardless of their circumstances, has an opportunity to thrive.
Join us in our journey to make a difference. Together, we can create a world filled with hope, love, and shared responsibility. For more information please visit https://www.sharetanzania.co.uk/
