Did you know? 
  • There are 53 million children living without parents in Sub-Sahara Africa (UNICEF*).
  • In Tanzania, with a population of 44 million, there are more than 3 million orphans, many of whose parents have died from AIDS.
  • Tanzania has more than 1.5 million people living with AIDS. 
  • Most orphanages will not accept babies because they are too expensive to care for and require too many workers.
  • Due to a shortage of clean blood supply in Africa, mothers die during child birth at a much higher rate, resulting in many orphaned babies.  
  • In Tanzania, babies are abandoned in hospitals, churches, along the road, in forests, bus stations, and many other places.
  • To adopt a child in Tanzania you must live in the country 3 years, be married, and be at least 25 years old, which basically stops out of country adoptions.

These are some of the reasons why Neema House Arusha has been established.
