During October, we had the pleasure of showcasing the inspirational and vital work of The Upendo Foundation. We talked closely with their team and were sent amazing photos of their recent work. It gave us a better appreciation of their cause and showed us the importance of their vital work.

About Upendo

Upendo works hard to care for orphans and underprivileged children in Tanzania. They work with the local government agency in Moshi to provide loving family-type care for children who have no family support. Generous givers and supporters help to fund the care and education of these children.

Over ten years ago, Upendo started as a school for underprivileged children in Moshi, Tanzania. Now they have grown into a safe refuge for kids who lack family support. Their sole purpose is to support these vulnerable kids, give them a safe home and an excellent education.


The Upendo Mission

Upendo are focused on changing the lives of children and giving them hope for a brighter future. 

They support and encourage them to become responsible, confident and productive members of their community. Upendo’s fantastic team of regular and part-time volunteers, donors and sponsors are committed to helping children in Tanzania. Supporting vulnerable kids out of poverty is their focus and what drives them to continue their inspirational cause.

Home of Hope

Upendo is the Home of Hope for impoverished children in Moshi, Tanzania – providing much-needed shelter, food, education, life skills and protection.

Their Home of Hope campaign directly supports the Upendo home with a range of projects including:

  • Safe and comfortable beds for the children,
  • Providing and preparing food for the children
  • Supporting the children with an environment of love and connection
  • Teaching vital skills skills, like cooking — preparing them for life and independence
