“Great Hope for Society is the realization of my dream to care for orphans and abandoned children. The dream was born when my parents opening our house to some orphans and abandoned children by creating a space in our home to share what we had.
My desire to care for the less fortunate started from when I was a young girl. Being brought up with parents who cared for the less fortunate in the society, I witnessed how children were suffering after being abandoned by their parents due to excess drinking or poverty and orphans who were left destitute after the death of their parents. I felt in my heart that all the hurting children should be taken care of, yet nobody cared about them. It is because of this situation that I vowed in my heart that if I get a chance in future and have my own organization, I would not live to see children suffer after losing parents but would make sure they attain education in order to better their lives.
I shared the idea with my family who supported me. Therefore I made up my mind to take care of a 6 and 1 year old girls while in their home. Their mother had died and they were living with their father who couldn’t take good care of them.
In February 2009 I went to the Ministry of Home Affairs and expressed my intention to open a charitable institution and in 2012 our organization was registered under registration number S.A 18237
Our organization has grown to 52 children in total. We are located at Gongo la Mboto, Ulongoni B, Dar es Salaam.
