Due to the difficult economic situation in Tanzania, which has dragged on for many years, millions of people live in poverty and have no hope of ever rising above their current situation.
AIDS has decimated the working population and has resulted in over a million orphans. Over 35% of the population, live below the poverty line. The need is so great that it is overwhelming and as such it seems too difficult for individuals to attempt to solve or be involved in.
Just on 20 years ago, Pastor Glorious and Josephine Shoo saw the desperate need of the poor and needy children in their neighborhood. They understood that one permanent and effective way of combating the extreme poverty around them, was through quality education balanced with loving care and faith. They began to open their home and to love and educate local street children – one by one the children came and their lives and futures were changed forever.
