“Time to stop giving, and start sharing…”
As word has spread to the many neighbouring communities of our presence in Uchira, more and more people in the area have begun seeking us out to ask for a little assistance. These men, women and children are often desperate for help, in some which way shape or form… daily people are at our gates, and we listen to each and every one of them, but sadly we often cannot help everyone due to lack of resources…
Unlike larger charities, I want to give people a chance to meet those that come to our gates who need help in life and see and hear their stories first hand.
This page will be a place for those families in need, to be seen by those who may be able to afford to share a little something with them, to change their lives...

“Share with a person” rather than just to give to a faceless charity pot is the simple hope we have here...
How it will work…
When a person in need here comes to us, and we have not the money or resources available to help that person or persons, we will document the problems they are facing.
With that individual's permission, we will take photo’s and or video and put together an appeal.
We will then directly share that person problem on our website and social media pages on the day/ or the following day, that they come to us for help.
We will also share the solution to the problem. Be it medical care costs, housing costs etc… (most often it is medical care people ask us for help with at the moment)
We will provide the chance for an individual or group of people to directly help that person, by sharing with them what is needed.
We will finish the sharing by making a video of the person or persons helped, so they can directly explain the help they received and what it has meant to them and their lives.
This can have an impact beyond comprehension… in a country where a £10 medical bill can cost a person their life, sharing can, does and will change the lives of your neighbors here in Tanzania.
Our hope is that this initiative will allow anyone, who may be feeling they are in a position to make a charitable donation, able to “share with a person” rather than just to give to a faceless charity pot.
To see the face, and hear of the life and the problem a fellow human on this planet is facing right now…. and to offer some love and support, as if that person were in your home city, town, village or street even.
A chance to start sharing with someone in need, from one human to another and see the difference that makes up close, as we do daily…
