If so, please don't hesitate to share the love. In my time here I have noticed that Uzima and NLF provide otherwise unachievable opportunities for student and staff, and that these two organizations ask for FAR less financially than they need.
Only 30% of New Life students pay their tuition. Otherwise, NLF relies entirely on sponsorship and donations. It boasts highly effective sustainability projects (corn fields, chicken coups, and green houses) however all the benefits from these projects go directly to feeding the students.
As someone who grew up in a community with access to excess, I cannot go far enough in encouraging the gift of giving.
The best way to give to Uzima, a young organization that needs funds to help it reach its potential, is by wire. If you are donating from America, my family has established an NGO called the Domino Family Foundation, through which you may wire the money to Uzima. The reason for this is that Uzima is a registered NGO in Tanzania, but not in America, so in order to receive a tax refund it is best to send through Domino Family Foundation. From other nations, it may be more suitable to wire directly using the following information:
