TRANSFORMING LIVES ON BOTH SIDES OF AN OCEAN
The connection between a child and a sponsor is more than just a transactional source of funding. It is a transformational relationship that changes the lives of everyone involved. It allows us to intertwine our lives and create a hopeful new story, together. Your monthly gift of $25 helps to provide holistic care for a vulnerable child including nutritional support, education fees, medical care, and spiritual guidance from our local East African partners.
BUT, TO BE HONEST, WE ARE ASKING FOR SOMETHING
MORE VALUABLE THAN YOUR MONEY. WE’RE ASKING FOR YOU.
If you are interested in changing the life of a vulnerable child and allowing yourself to be changed in the process, we would love to introduce you to some amazing kids. Scroll down the page to meet children from across East Africa who are in need of a sponsor.
Note: To express the individual beauty and uniqueness of the kids while also protecting their identity online, we’ve created a custom sketch for each child instead of using their actual photo.
In northern Tanzania, Lahash has partnered with Path of Hope in the Shinyanga Region. Path of Hope is a church-based ministry serving children affected by HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty. The director, Jeanette Nyakyema, and co-directors from the surrounding districts began by teaching Bible stories and praying with the children, and have continued to grow their ministry to meet the holistic needs of vulnerable children in their communities.

In Tanzania, Lahash has partnered with Grace and Healing Ministry of Dodoma (GHMD) to provide holistic care for children in need. GHMD began as a group of women from a local church who wished to address the impact of HIV/AIDS on their community. They started gathering under a tree in front of the church, and their meetings and prayers soon turned into action. They began visiting and caring for adults and children infected and affected by the disease as a way to tangibly express the love of Christ to their neighbors.
