Faraja Orphans Rescue Ministry Charity Profile
The founder of Faraja Orphans Rescue Ministry (FORM), Mrs. Sarah Mpanilehi, experienced life in Tanzania as an orphan when both of her parents passed away. Driven by the desire to be the hands of Jesus to other orphans of Tanzania, Sarah and her husband Samuel, in August of 2005, began their ministry with their own savings. They appropriately named their mission Faraja Orpahns Rescue Ministry. In Kiswahili, Faraja means comfort, which is what they desire to provide. Our Mission is to ensure sustainable hope for Orphans, to achieve, promote and encourage them in active participation in informal and formal education, vocational training in order to let them feel mentally, physically, socially and psychologically acceptable in the society.
Faraja Orphans Rescue Ministry Volunteer Information
One of the biggest things we consider a blessing and enjoy are people that volunteer. There is always something that needs to be done within our ministry. We welcome anyone that longs to help whether for a short amount of time or a long amount of time. We pray that the Lord allows our team to grow continually so that our hopes and dreams for this ministry will be accomplished.
