His Hands for Tanzania Child Sponsorship Program

We are a child sponsorship program that pairs sponsors, people like yourself, with children in need in Tanzania. His Hands for Tanzania works alongside our partner in Tanzania, Jerry Backus.  Jerry is the director and founder of Falco's Children's Village in Karatu, Tanzania.  His goal is to provide for orphaned children in an enriching, family-style village environment. They will nurture, encourage and equip the children to take care of themselves and be the future leaders of Tanzania by the time they are old enough to leave the village.  His Hands for Tanzania gives them further opportunity to do this. When a child is sponsored for $25 per month through His Hands for Tanzania they receive:

  • Food, clothing, and shelter in a wonderful children's home
  • Medical expenses
  • School uniform (required in Tanzania) 
  • Educational materials
  • School fees

Each child needs four sponsors to help cover the cost of their food, clothing, shelter, and medical expenses as well as the cost of their school uniform, educational materials, and school fees.  The fee for each sponsorship is $25 per month (even though the actual monthly budget per child at Falco's is $200). Sponsors receive a photo and personal information about the child they are helping including information about how to correspond with their child, if they choose to do so. Sponsors can choose the age and/or gender of the child they would like to sponsor and may continue to sponsor the same child from year to year, as long as the child remains in the program. 100% of the sponsorship payment goes directly to Tanzania. None of it is used to cover the administrative expenses of this program here in the US.  Please note - the sample information sheet above right has been censored for publication on this website. 

Sponsoring a child in Indonesia is truly a blessing not only to the child, but to the sponsor as well. If you would like information about how you can sponsor an Indonesian child, please contact us. If you would like to view some of the children that are available to be sponsored, please visit our Children In Need page.
