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.




The women and girls at PH have always needed their own transportation - to go to school, church, hospital and onwards. AFOPH is starting this fundraiser to create the viability for this dream to materialize. You can help make this happen by clicking the Donate Button below. Be a part of this huge stretch for American Friends. More photos and info to come.
