Our vision is to create a place of hope and holistic care for children with albinism and other vulnerable children. Hover over the photos to see each component. We aim to be self-sustainable and are currently developing our 10.5-acre plot in Shinyanga!
At the heart of our vision is bringing the orphan and vulnerable into family.
After putting down roots in Shinyanga, we realized that the most vulnerable and the ones to whom God is calling us are those with albinism. Our vision is to have a safe place for them to be in family, receive a quality education, and ultimately to know the love that Jesus has for them.
In April 2019, SHADE broke ground on our first ministry building, a multi-purpose space made out of five shipping containers. This building allowed us to transition from our rented space in town into a home of our own! It contains five offices, a kitchen, two classrooms, and large meeting and prayer room, and bathrooms. And, in January of 2020, we launched the Shade School in this very space!
Take a look around the space- as it was being built- below!
