Dina Center at Zanzibar

Zanzibar, which is part of Tanzania, is known for its beautiful beaches and warm climate. Every year tourist from around the world travel to this well know place and stay at the luxurious hotels. But just outside the massive walls surrounding the hotels, thousands of orphans live.

Just 10 miles outside of Stonetown, a well-known tourist area, we have bought a piece of land measuring 1150 x 1300 feet. Our dream is to build a new center on this lot, holding a vocational training for boys and girls, playground areas, a health clinic, a dental clinic, a dorm for volunteer workers, a well, and walls protecting the center.

Before we can start building this center, we need help financing this project. We are contacting individuals, businesses, schools, and kindergartens, asking them to help us finance this building project.
