This Year's Project: STEMM Children's Village
STEMM is a multi-faceted Christian ministry seeking to transform lives in Siouxland and Tanzania through our dedicated partnership together in serving the needs of others with Christ-like care, commitment, and compassion.
Current Project: STEMM Children's Village
Famine, poverty, AIDS, and disease in the nation of Tanzania have contributed to a growing epidemic of homeless, orphaned children. Without help, these children are destined to a future of hunger and hopelessness.
In response to that need, STEMM has purchased land and built STEMM Children's Village with homes to provide a "family" to those who have none. We began with two homes, but they are now full, and there is a waiting list of desperate children still in need - enough to fill two more homes. So, we are in the process of building again! The construction funding has already been committed, thanks to generous donors.
Our present goal, then, is to raise the necessary funding to continue to provide care for our current children, as well as those who will be joining them once the new homes are built. This includes food, clothing, mamas and aunties to care for them, school fees, healthcare, and so much more. STEMM children don't feel like orphans in an institution, they feel like brothers and sisters in a family. And that's the way it should be, because every child deserves a family!
