What we do
One child at a time
The House of Blue Hope's main program is to provide housing to boys and girls in need. We support up to 29 children between 3 houses, currently 2 for boys and 1 for girls. They live in our homes with the support of several staff members and volunteers. Our children receive the essentials to thrive such as shelter, food, water, clothes, medical care and school fees for reputable schools within Dar es Salaam.
We have also set up educational programs in addition to school learning such as hygiene, computer classes, sports and recreation, and additional English classes.
Often STDs/HIV has affected the children we take in, either directly or indirectly. We carry out testing to ensure they get the medical care they need, and counseling and support where appropriate.
Our goal is to provide all the necessities for these children to obtain the future they desire.
House of Blue Hope takes an annual group journey to Tanzania — to see our work, to meet our kids, and to experience the beauty and culture of an amazing people and country. This is an adventure of a lifetime! Bi-annually, the trip also includes an additional experience to climb to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. A sample itinerary has been outlined below.
