We would love for you to join us in our mission to house, protect, provide healthcare and education, and plant seeds of hope for the children of Imani Orphanage in Tanzania. Here are three ways you can help us:

Pray for each boy and girl who comes through the doors of Imani that they would find love, safety, nourishment, education and a way to fulfill their dreams. Pray for the director and his family and those who work to help the children. Pray that our team will follow God's will for this mission and that all glory and honor would go toward making His name known among the nations.

We would love for you to share our site, our blogs, our Etsy page and our photos with your friends and family whether through email, social media, or word-of-mouth. Share your encouraging words with us also. We'd love to hear from you!

If this mission touches your heart, we welcome your support. Subscribe to our newsletter and learn of upcoming items/donations we need to fulfill the needs of Imani. We are a 501 (c) (3) organization. Please contact us to learn more.
