The children

Children come from all parts of the village area of Machumba and other local villages, around the city of Arusha. These children have been losing their families due to certain circumstances, and they belong to a very high poverty and lack of resources.

To be able to serve them properly, the Upendo Face Orphanage Foundation was created, a non-profit organization, with registration number 08539 NGO / NGO.
