Our Orphan and Women’s Programs in Mwanza, Tanzania on the southern shore of Lake Victoria in East Africa, works hand in hand with local leaders to direct donated funds which provide supplies and location for a school to educate and tutor orphaned children financially unable to attend public school, as well as provide extra help to those who can. We direct financial scholarships which allow additional orphans to attend public schools. Our vocational sewing school is available for orphans and adults, and the HHF Women’s Business Program which mentors women for success. Through donated funds we provide supplies and educate the local community in the use of E-C Kit for field microbiology testing for water safety, solar water pasteurization, and solar cooker construction and use to enhance both respiratory health and decrease the use of natural resources as fuel. Our International Healthcare Volunteers Team visits this community annually to providing portable on-site dental, medical and vision clinics free of charge and network with local healthcare and community leaders.
