What you have done to the least of these, you have done to me. Matt 25:40

Village Resource Center
Through our resource program we provide the needy with food, clothing, school uniforms, and educational supplies for children.  Our home is always open, and our soup pot is always hot. We cook daily and are always prepared to feed the hungry that stop by for a visit. Our regular visitors are usually hungry children that come from neighboring villages. Our mission is to care for the needy and help break the poverty cycle by teaching local families to become self-sufficient by growing their own vegetables, raising Chickens (for meat and eggs), Beef Cattle, Milk Goats or growing Moringa Trees. We hope to also one day implement a hot lunch program for schools.

Widows Assistance


Many times we find 70-80 year old widows caring for very young grandchildren. We help care for the children, bring them food, clothing and school supplies, assist with daily needs and give them lots of caring, friendly support and companionship.

A father to the fatherless, and a defender of the widows,

is God in His holy habitation. Psalms 68:5

How We Started

Hi, my name is Zanild Abarrane. In 2016 I was invited by a pastor to minister in Tanzania Africa. We had heard for many years through news media in America that HIV and AIDS was extremely high in parts of Africa. What the media does not tell you, is that children are losing their parents to these diseases and worse yet, after the parents die many children have no one to care for them. Families barely have enough food to feed their own families and at times go days without eating. Hungry children wander the villages in a desperate search of food. They are often found in the local garbage dump looking for a meal. We have seen children as small as 3 years old at the garbage dump searching for food. Babies and small children are dying from starvation. After living in Kyela for two months and personally witnessing this heart grieving devastation, I could not just pray for these children and hope someone else helped them...I was compelled to do something. In August of 2019, we obtained our official Tanzanian NGO charity status. The rest is history!

I love and care for each of these children as my own!
