Children growing up in impoverished areas of the world are not only trapped in the cycle of poverty, but are also vulnerable to instances of abandonment, violence, sexual abuse, injury, and illness. A strong community school creates a safe place for children and families to learn and grow together.
Mary & Martha is passionate about breaking that cycle of poverty for over 5,000 children in Arusha, Tanzania. We come alongside 26 villages to provide textbooks, pencils, paper, desks, chalkboards, and playground equipment to help create an environment in which children can learn, play, and grow mentally and physically. As we partner with Compassion, we call our project PTA of Tanzania because it supports the teachers and students who struggle to teach, learn, and grow while living in dire circumstances.
As a customer of Mary & Martha, you join us in this mission! Every purchase you make directly impacts the lives of many individuals in several ways:
- You are supporting your local Consultant and her family,
- You are joining us in breaking the cycle of poverty in the name of Jesus,
- You purchase products that will bless and impact your life, and the lives of your friends and family who may receive them as gifts.
In 2021, over $80,000 went toward our programs in Arusha, Tanzania. These programs not only met the physical needs of the Compassion children there, but also help continue their on-going work to meet holistic needs of the children, including their spiritual well-being.
As we continue our partnership in 2022, here’s how you can help:
- Pray. Lift your voice in prayer for the children and their families.
- Purchase. A percentage of every purchase from Mary & Martha goes directly to support our work in Tanzania.
- Donate. Add a donation to your order and support our work in Tanzania.
- Sponsor. Step into the life of a child as a Compassion sponsor. See who you can sponsor today!
