How to help us
1. Your time and your hands
Kids love having people around, who make them play and laugh. We also need help to finish the building or other little projects we have. So if you want to come and volunteer with us, you'll be very welcome.
Do you want to come? Contact us.
Build, play, teach, cook
Some volunteers helped us to build a garden and to build a henhouse. Some of them eat only once a day and we want to offer them the possibility to eat more healthy. They need to grow up strong to avoid illnesses. Others come to play with all our little nuggets and we don't really know who is more happy: kids or volunteers! :) Others help us teach them english or maths. And others help us cook.
2. Send us material
We need clothes, shoes and toys for the children. We are happy to accept packages. However, keep in mind that we have to pay a trigger amount of 30% of the contents of the goods for each package.
- We are happy to take clothes for children from 3-6 year
- Shoes size 25 to 30 (also rubber boots are very popular with us
- Toys of any kind
3. Help us with economical resources
We need money to achieve our goals. See them here. We have finished the second floor so far and rent out some rooms to volunteers in our small hostel. With this income, the operation of the orphanage should then be self-financing and we can continue to raise money.
By now, the easiest way to do it is through:
Our orphanage bank account:
Exim Bank (Arusha, Tansania), BIC/SWIFT: EXTNTZTZ , Account Number: 0030033035, Name: Enjivai Orphanage
With Western Union:
A global company which helps you move money instantly through the globe at a very low rates. You can go to a
Western Union office or use it online: Make a deposit on the following name: Ishumael Dominick Mollel
From now on there is also an account on a Swiss bank:
Raiffeisen Regio Altnau, 8595 Altnau, Switzerland
account number: CH43 8080 8004 8271 3002 8 SWIFT-BIC: RAIFCH22
account: "Orphanage Enjivai Tansania"
account owner: Rita Strasser, Gütlistrasse 2, 8280 Kreuzlingen, Switzerland
4. Sponsor the education of a kid
Public schools here are different than in Europe. They rarely teach English and there are lots of students per class, which is a very difficult environment to learn. Private schools are much better and they can learn good English for their future.
Thanks to the financial support of private sponsors, we can send children of school age to private schools every year so that they receive better education and thus have a chance for their future.
If you want to sponsor one year education of one of our little kids, just send as an email or contact us and we will explain you what's included in the fee and how can we arrange this. The price depends on how many terms you want to sponsor, but a whole year costs around 1'600'000 TZS (Tanzania Shilling) which is around 650 $/year.
Of course, it would also be nice if a child could be supported for more than one year. Compulsory schooling in Tanzania is 11 to 13 years.
