The Story

These orphaned children are about to lose the only home they've ever known! 
The Maasai Childrens' Education Center in Arusha, Tanzania, is in crisis. Their rental home will be placed on the sale market at the end of this month, and without the help of generous donors like you, the children and sponsor family will be forced back onto the streets of Arusha. MCEC relies solely on donations to meet their monthly expenses of rent, food, staff and basic care for the 15 young kids (and more arriving soon) who call it home. 

Some are children with disabilities whose families are unable to care for them, some have lost one or both parents, and some have family who are just too poor to even feed and clothe them.

The MCEC also runs a kindergarten school for children housed at the center, as well as for the neighborhood children. This crucial early education is provided free of charge through your donations. The MCEC is a Christian-based center, giving children not only a safe place to live and a hope for the future, but also a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Update as of 7/12/16: With the help of an incredibly generous Anonymous donor, we reached our $10,000 downpayment goal by the deadline in July! And other donors stepped forward with an additional $500. NOW we must focus on coming up with the balance of $45,500 over the next 5 months, in order to fully purchase the house and property for these special kids. I personally have been fully funding some of the efforts of this orphanage for the past year. Now I need YOUR help to be champion for these kids and the blessed caretakers who have given up their home and lives to care for the future of Tanzania. 

100% of these donations will be sent directly to MCEC for funding the purchase of a home for these kids. If you cannot donate at this time, please share this opportunity with friends and family. Above all, please pray for these kids and their caregivers, that we might through the power of prayer be able to save their home and their future!  

Thank you from all of us at The Maasai Children's Education Center!

To our friends in the USA: 

Greetings from MCEC, and congratulations on electing a new President. Regardless of your desired outcome of this election, we wish to remind you what a truly blessed life you enjoy, to have this freedom of choice and the chance at a bright future for next generations.

For our orphans here at the MCEC center, the future is uncertain. Without your continued donations, we will not be able to reach our fundraising goal and purchase the house we all call "home." Adoption is an almost unheard-of term here in Tanzania. Truly the only hope these kids have is to grow up together under the care of the MCEC family and staff. They all receive basic education, and - if sponsors are available - a chance at higher education. Every child deserves to have a decent, healthy, and enjoyable childhood, and the CHANCE to be an active and contributing member of their society. 

God has given us each other. Now we pray everyday that HE can turn on the light in others' hearts, and show them the way to helping us continue to thrive and impact this world with positivity and hope. We pray he will guide other orphaned children into our path so that MCEC can become their family. And we pray that YOU, can find it within your means to share with us whatever funds you can spare.
We thank you for sharing our fundraising link with all those you know, and for offering up even the smallest of donations. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the lives of so many children.

"Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God." Hebrews 13:16

WOW, we did it! Thanks to an incredibly generous ANONYMOUS donor who pledged $10,000, and others who gave an additional $500, we met the July deadline of raising the house downpayment! MCEC is so grateful to these donors who gave selflessly. Now, the fight continues, as we only have 5 months to raise the remaining $45,500 balance due on the house and property. Please continue to share this message and fundraiser, donate when you can, and most of all pray that our wonderful God provide these children with more champions and miracles. Thank you everyone!

Hi all, thank you for your donations through YouCaring and other means. We are getting closer, but still need to reach our minimum of $10,000 by July 10th. This is the downpayment as requested by the homeowner, so that MCEC can enter the contract to purchase the orphanage. Henry, the caretaker and manager for MCEC, has searched Arusha but not found a suitable or affordable alternative to their current home. We desperately need this purchase to go forward, so the kids have a consistent home and chance at a full life. These children are praying for a miracle....let's make it happen for them!
