Sponsor a Child
Thank you for your interest in reaching out to orphaned and disadvantaged children at The City of Hope. TCOH Children’s Home is based on an innovative strategy that is making a difference in the lives of those who suffer pain, poverty and hopelessness daily.
The pilot project of TCOH is situated in the beautiful village of Ntagacha in western Tanzania, between the Serengeti National Park and Lake Victoria, near the border of Kenya. We are keeping the children in their own cultural environment where they can continue to be a vital part of their community. It is an area of stability and protection away from potential dangers such as human trafficking and drugs which are found in large cities.
Challenges children face today
Children today face remarkable obstacles that rob them of their hope and threaten to steal their future. Many children in Africa are raising themselves and their younger brothers and sisters because their parents have died. Poverty, lack of education, and lack of healthcare add to the difficulties. There has never been a more critical time to reach out and make a difference.
When you sign up as a child sponsor, you partner with others around the world who share your commitment to transform a nation one child at a time. I believe child sponsorship will be a fulfilling, meaningful experience for you. We know that it will change a child’s life!
Yours in His Service,
Dr. John N. Chacha
”Our Vision at TCOH is to help the poorest of the poor – the children.”
Become a Child of Hope Sponsor
For $35 a month you can become personally involved in the life of one special child who will know your name, write to you and feel your tender love and prayers. $420.00 will provide sponsorship for one child for an entire year.
How the children benefit from sponsorship
The goal for the children at TCOH is to help them overcome the obstacles of poverty and equip them to to move confidently into the future. These children are the future leaders of Tanzania. You will become a partner in bringing transformation to their lives, to the community and to the nation.Your sponsored children will receive hygiene education, life-coping skills, medical care, vocational training, and schooling. All this comes along with affirmation and love from house “parents” who create a family atmosphere different from many traditional orphanages.
Communicating with your sponsored children
Each sponsor will receive a profile with a photograph and introductory information. You can send your sponsored children a personal or family photograph and a short letter to introduce yourself. The letter will be translated by our TCOH staff and delivered to the children. You can also email your letters for your children to email@example.com and we will translate and deliver. Your child will send you a personal letter at least once a year.
TCOH will provide you with periodic updates about the children’s progress and newsletters about the activities at TCOH. If you would ever decide to visit, this can be arranged through our office.
Note: Due to the great needs of the children, some children will require more than one sponsor.
