Some more detail on the project itself;

The real guys behind these amazing efforts are Arousa, Leenah, Shaid, Shareen & Tahina and they have called this THE HAVEN PROJECT.

In August 2014, they travelled to Tanzania as part of the Mission Possible programme, where they helped to deliver humanitarian aid in the form of sustainable living solutions in a village called Matandu.

As part of their trip, they were given the opportunity to visit the Eco Village in Kisemvule, just outside Dar es Salaam. They had all read and heard about the Eco Village, but witnessing the beautiful scenery and experiencing the serenity in the area, was something they had never felt before. They were all fascinated by the concept that an area of land could be completely self-sustainable. They spent a day playing games and having fun with the 10 orphan girls who lived in the Eco House within the Eco Village, and also held a sports day involving the girls from Islamic Help's school. 

They were all deeply touched by the concept of the Eco Village, and they saw the incredible environment that the orphans were being raised in. Some of the girls had come from troubled backgrounds, but were now given the opportunity to be children again, and to be looked after so well and supported physically, psychologically and emotionally, supported in their education, as well as in developing life skills and integrating with society. They decided there and then that they wanted to raise the funds to build another Eco Home so that another 10 orphans can be given the opportunity for a fresh start in a safe environment.............. and this is when the next mission began!!!!

They want to raise the funds to build another Eco House to home another 10 orphans. All the funds raised from the challenge will go towards building and furnishing a fully functioning Eco House, for 10 orphan children and a foster mother.

They need to raise £60,000 to build and fully furnish a home ready for the orphans and ‘mother’! This may sound like a lot but it isn’t when so many people are helping and spreading the word

The Eco Village ultimately aims to:

  • Facilitate the children's growth in an empathic family setting that they need
  • Provide a secure base for their physical, psychological and emotional growth
  • Ensure their attendance at elementary school and support them to excel to higher standards
  • Help the children acquire economic survival skills necessary for a productive life as an adult
  • Provide holistic community-based care that supports them into becoming socially integrated adults in society.

The village will include:

  • 16 homes for 160 vulnerable children
  • Accommodation for their professional carers
  • General manager's family quarters
  • Administrative block
  • 2 staff family quarters
  • Sports ground
  • Children's play area
  • Eco mosque
  • Community centre
  • Library
