The first time we met was 2017. Soon after, we realized that we both have huge hearts for people which need help and big visions for our own lives.

One part of my family did not want me and the other part who wanted to care for me had no money and lived in a too bad environment. I grew up suffering and fighting since I was born. The feeling of not belonging anywhere and suffering due to the lack of money was always with me. When I was six years old I had to live on the street. To me it seemed to be the only option at this point. Luckily, one day I was found by one of the NGO`s in Moshi. But even there I run away sometimes because I wanted to belong to a Family and not to a children home. It was never good for me to grow up apart from my family. When Social workers left I stood there alone. And the relationship between my parents and me broke in a way which can’t be fixed again. I wish to empower and educate families and women to prevent children growing up, with the sorrow i had to go trough. I believe if my parents had gotten support, I would have had a much better childhood. I lost many friends on the street with similar background stories. I can thank God that there were people who helped me the best they could. I want to do everything to make the life of children here better and believe the way to do this is by empowering their families.

I grew up in a caring family with a brother and my parents where I experienced the love of a family like I would wish it for everyone. Due to personal difficulties later in my life, which are not related to my family, do I know how it feels to suffer. This is why I wish to give others a change to live a life full of happiness and confidence. I believe we humans should share more of our warm heart. Share a smile, a hug, listen to someone or laugh with someone. Sharing life with people who love you means a lot to me. That's what helped me trough my own struggles. In a family you are protected and loved. It is the main place of sharing life. With our project I would love to give everyone the change to share the life with us and their family.
