About St. Mark's Children's Home and Orphanage
St. Mark’s Children’s Home and Orphanage in Usa River, Tanzania provides over 100 orphaned children with shelter, food, and education. Friends-Who-Care is a U.S. based organization that connected with St. Mark’s through Tanzanian tourism and is now partnering with Utopia Foundation to help provide the children of St. Marks with a brighter future. With seventy percent of the citizens in Tanzania living on less than $1 a day, and no free public education, most children have no chance to receive an education.
St. Mark's fundraising efforts focus on providing educational opportunities to 76 school-aged children. Friends-Who-Care makes it possible for 14 of the orphaned students to attend boarding school, which alleviates the financial responsibility to feed and clothe them at the orphanage. Utopia Foundation has also helped fund children to attend the “go and come home again” school.
Your donation will allow St, Mark's to continue providing education and a nurturing environment for the children of Tanzania.
