We use profits from our Majestic Kilimanjaro business to provide support to New Paradiso Orphanage. Clients who choose to use our services know that their money is staying in Tanzania and is being put to good use.
In September our Managing Director, Tumaini Sandi, suggested we purchase supplies such as 50 kg of Rice, 10 litres of Cooking oil, 120 Eggs, 10 kg of Sugar, tea bags, washing powder, soap for shower, tooth paste etc to help out the household. He then went shopping in Arusha town to purchase everything.
The beautiful children (most of whom lost their parents due to HIV/ AIDS) with carers Babu and Bibi are shown here happily receiving our gift. As you can see the eggs are taking pride of place.
Their honest sweet smiles can not be compared to anything else in life.
