The City of Hope is a Tanzanian initiative that is designed to raise leaders of tomorrow by giving orphaned and vulnerable children a safe home, quality education and a promising future.
Since opening in 2007, The City of Hope has grown from an orphanage into a small city complete with a primary school, mission house, regional medical clinic, teachers’ quarters, dormitories, dining facilities, seamstress shop, kitchen, and dining hall.
The City houses over 100 orphans and vulnerable children, and the school, which year after year tests in the top 95% of the country, teaches over 400 children.
The City of Hope is structured to one day be self sustainable, and is currently able to grow 70% of its own food supply.
In 2015, Dr. John Chacha, a native to Ntagatcha, Tanzania and the co-founder of The City of Hope, lost his life in a car accident while taking two of his kids to a university in Kenya one year ago. Since then, his wife and family have continued to build upon his dream, and have broken ground on the Dr. John Chacha Secondary School and Institute of Leadership.
