We are a Canadian not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and their families living in Jambiani, Zanzibar, Tanzania.
Through sustainable initiatives, we empower villagers to break the cycle of poverty and thrive as a community. Our programs employ and are managed by local villagers.
About Signs of Hope in Africa
We have a number of ongoing projects such as:
- a Breakfast Program which gives 300 pre-school children a strong start to their day
- a Family Sponsorship Program which allows families to establish a business to become self-sufficient
- a School Uniform Program, replacing the worn and tattered ones with new, locally made uniforms, giving a huge boost of self-esteem and confidence to the children
- the purchase of flocks of chickens for families to provide them with nutrition as well as a way to earn income
