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