The Haven Project

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

As part of our trip, we were given the opportunity to visit the Eco Village in Kisemvule, just outside Dar es Salaam. We had all read and heard about the Eco Village, but witnessing the beautiful scenery and experiencing the serenity in the area, was something we had never felt before. We were all fascinated by the concept that an area of land could be completely self-sustainable. We 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. 

We were all deeply touched by the concept of the Eco Village, and we 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. We decided there and then that we 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!!!!

Thank you for your support,

In December 2017, we held our final fundraising event - a Quiz Night held at Al Bader restaurant in Birmingham to complete our fundraising. An evening filled with fun, laughter and celebration was the perfect way to end our mammoth fundraising task. A massive thank you to everyone who helped us put this event together and of course, to everyone who has continued to support us through every step of our journey. We now look forward to the next steps in this project, to see the house being built, and made into a home filled with love xx
