The Harbour House provides a safe and supportive environment for women and children in need during crisis.
In Africa millions of girls do not have the opportunity to get an education. Most parents cannot afford to educate their daughters, so they are forced to stay home and work. Many of them become pregnant and are married by the age of 15 and 16. These girls deserve a chance at looking forward to a better tomorrow , a brighter future, and to get an education. The House of Hope will be a homeand school for the girls of Tanzania who have aspirations and dreams, a safe place where they will live, grow and learn in a positive environment. The House of Hope will empower these young girls through Education. It will be a place of Hope!
