The Amani House sponsorship has been designed specifically for our 24 resident children at Peace Matunda in order to provide holistic support including shelter, food, water, clothing, education, and a safe home environment. Our resident children are from a variety of backgrounds but are classified as orphans by the Tanzanian government, having lost all or one their parents. Peace Matunda provides a home to these children and supports all of their mental, spiritual, physical, and social needs. Our goal is to have each child living at Amani House sponsored at $150 USD per month in order to sustain the cost of running the Amani House. As the sole providers for these children is it important that Peace Matunda not only think about their current welfare but also considering their future welfare and needs. For this reason we have added the Post-Peace Matunda Fund to the Amani House child sponsorship program. The Post Peace Matunda Fund has been designed to cater for the future educational costs of the child. The fund will automatically save a contribution from monthly sponsorship for the child’s subsequent four-your secondary education; each month 30% of your sponsorship ($45) will be put into a savings account for your sponsored child to be used for their secondary education. Each year sponsors will receive an updated statement on the balance of the Post-Peace Matunda Savings Fund for your specific child. While the Post-Peace Matunda Fund will contribute to the costs of secondary school many boarding facilities will cost upwards of $1000 per year. Sponsors are under no obligation to continue sponsorship after the child leaves Peace Matunda, nor is there a formal ‘written contract’ to determine the length of your commitment. Due to the fragile and uncertain nature of most children’s futures within education after they leave Peace Matunda, we do try to match sponsors who demonstrate a continued interest in long term support, with those children who will need it most. A monthly donation of $150USD covers the cost of sposorship and Post-Peace Matunda Savings Fund.
With your generous donation you will receive:
- An email confirming your sponsorship
- A picture of your sponsored child along with a letter from him/her
- A biannual email from Peace Matunda and the child
- A week of free accommodation with us at Peace Matunda each year

Thank you to everyone who currently sponsors an Amani House child!
