The Kimaro family knew they had to do something for these children and, in 2003, they founded Living Water Children Centre. It is dedicated to the care, education, and advocacy of disadvantaged children in and around Arusha. The Centre currently houses over 100 orphans and children from impoverished or underserved backgrounds as well as disabled youth whose families are unable to care for them.
In 2008 Sherry Fine spent two weeks volunteering at Living Water and, determined to help the Kimaros provide for these children, she founded the NGO, Living Water Children’s Fund. LWCFund provided an additional funding source for the Kimaro’s dream of the creation of a small school as well as general support for the needs of the children.
The Kimaros, with the help of LWCF, have saved hundreds of children from the streets, abuse and starvation. Your support helps us to continue this work-there are more children out there who need us.
