Our Vision

American Friends of Pippi House will facilitate the positive change and provide the protection to the “street” girls and children who live at this shelter in Arusha, Tannzania. We intend to provide more than the basics that all young women and children deserve. We believe they all deserve the right to be free, educated and valued.Therefore, they will have a greater oppotunity to become self-reliant, confident and happy within themselves. Pippi House is an example to the community, in developing the individuals’ capabilities at whatever level is appropriate. However, ALL ARE AT RISK. Without help, they will never have the support, education or skills to acquire a meaningful and productive life. Watch the video below to understand just some of the issues they face and how we can help.

Pippi House Has Their New Home

New Building

Through the tireless work of Promanity, a German sister NGO, their dream home has come true with the continuing support and funds from AFOPH, There is still a great need for the installation of water pipes for kitchen and bathroom. Currently, the girls are still cooking outside on wood. These are some of the current needs, but we are getting there! Join us in this amazing regeneration of the only safe house for abused and abandoned girls in Northern Tanzania.
