Children of Hope and Faith is a personalized sponsorship program enabling you to provide a Catholic education for an orphan or needy child in the Rulenge-Ngara and Kayanga Dioceses in Tanzania, East Africa. 

Plight of the Orphaned Children of Tanzania

There are millions of orphans worldwide and at least 2 million in Tanzania alone. Orphans are particularly vulnerable both materially and spiritually. If an orphan survives until school age, the most determining factor for their future is a good education. An African saying goes, “Education is the key of life." You can give hope to a child for a promising future.

How to Become a Sponsor

Step 1 Prayerfully consider how you can help!
Step 2 Send an email to us and let us know your intentions.
Step 3 We will send you a letter with payment instructions. 

Catholic Schools

The Catholic schools where children are sponsored are boarding schools,  which is an ideal situation for orphans. All the needs of the children are provided for the academic year, including housing, food, school supplies and uniforms. The Catholic grade schools and high schools are "English medium schools," which means that they teach in English. This is a huge advantage, because students fluent in English have a better chance at succeeding and reaching their full potential.

The Cost of Sponsorship

The cost of sponsoring a child to a Catholic grade school or high school is $60/month or $700/year. The direct coordination between the Development Office of the Dioceses and the Catholic schools ensures 100% of your sponsorship benefits the education of your sponsored child. Please note, we welcome half sponsorships!

We will work with you to determine a payment schedule that works best for your particular needs. Many people like the convenience of paying once a year, but others find a quarterly or even monthly schedule to be preferable. 

What You Will Receive as a Sponsor

  • A photograph of your sponsored child
