Our vision is the Shade Campus, a place of hope and holistic care for children with albinism and other vulnerable children. 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. (Psalm 68:6)
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. In January of 2020, we launched the Shade School in this very space!
In February 2021, construction began on phase two of Shade School, which included seven classrooms and ten bathrooms and was completed in time to open the new Shade Primary School for the 2022 school year.
