Donations to LOHADA fund our ongoing education, health and day-to-day programs. Donations can be processed either through our secure PayPal link below, or by transferring appreciated securities. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law and are processed in U.S. dollars through Kesho, a U.S. 501(c)(3) umbrella organization dedicated to educating and caring for children in East Africa. Gifts of appreciated stock are also a smart and simple way to support LOHADA. These gifts allow you to give more with less by potentially allowing you to take both an income tax deduction and avoid capital gains taxes.
Running an organization like LOHADA requires stepping out in faith, believing that funds will become available to help more children . . . . build more classrooms. . . . provide food and clothing for children, even in lean times.
Like the vast majority of Tanzanians, LOHADA is frugal by necessity. Many classrooms have only one textbook per subject. Camp Joshua gets only two hours of electricity to light its dorms at night. Younger LOHADA children share clothes and shoes. Their medical and school supplies are limited.
The needs are great. But because of people like you, and through faith, children are being educated, clothed, fed and loved. Your donations can change the course of lives for LOHADA children and elderly people. With your help, we can continue to step out boldly and serve even more disadvantaged people.
Some of our more pressing needs are listed here. We warmly appreciate all donations, however small: You can donate even a portion toward these needs. We also welcome non-specific donations.
