Welcome,and thank you for your interest in the orphans and vulnerable children of Songea, Tanzania. Here you will learn how you can help these children break the chains of poverty and neglect, and help Songea's Kids give them a future by meeting their daily needs and providing education.

Sponsor Education: Education is the key to escaping the cycle of poverty and dependency. Become an Education Sponsor or give to the Education/Scholarship Fund to provide uniforms, school supplies, books, fees, and tuition for our children.

Sponsor a Child: As a Basic Needs sponsor your donations will pay for daily needs - food, healthcare, medicine, clothing, shoes, and nurturing care.

Give Life & Hope-Donate Now!

Our Vision: Songea's Kids mentors and provides seed money to help Tanzanians meet the basic, health and educational needs of their orphaned children.

Our Mission: Songea's Kids collaborates with Tanzanian partners to bring life and hope to orphans by establishing self-sustaining programs and building infrastructure such as Hope Village.



The 2016 Songea Soiree and Auction was a BIG success!

( A full report will be presented here shortly. )

Tina Ellenbogen, who attended the Soiree, emailed the following comments to Songea's Kids Presedent, Linda Hines, giving permission to share:

"The Songea's Kids Soiree was a lovely event last Saturday November 5th, & I'm now the proud owner of a beautiful Tanzanian necklace, handmade bowl & letter opener. I hope the event was as successful a fundraiser as expected. The slide shows & speeches were very moving -it's clear the group makes a difference in the daily lives of and future opportunities for these orphans: building a water well, providing medical supplies, building new housing, facilitating higher education & involving villagers in the projects through mentoring & teaching them building skills. One of the pro bono architects from Seattle took her 13-year-old son with her. He raised enough money through his own "Go Fund Me" page to bring medicines, games, real soccer balls and even laptops to the kids! I'm proud to have participated this summer collecting needed medications and supplies."

2016 Songea Soiree Video

This video shows why the Soiree fund raiser was so important to the young people of Songea:



Songea's Kids Video: This video explains the mission of Songea's Kids and the vision of Hope Village. It visualizes the Hope Village project to serve the orphans and people of Lutukira village. There have been many updates to the plan to use local materials, local labor, and updated building designs. We are excited about the recent visit to the site, the start of construction, and the progress that has been made in making Hope Village a reality. The video will be updated with the new site plan and new construction methods very soon, but this still gives the a good idea of what Hope Village will be. Come to the 2016 Songea Soiree to hear first hand, and look for the updated video.
