Annual Report 2022

December 13, 2022


Dear Friends, Caregivers, Partners and Donors, 

We thank the Almighty GOD for all of our blessings. 


We are very sad to see in news media the massive loss of life during Russia’s Ukraine war. We are seeing the destruction of infrastructure, increased air and environmental pollution, increased social problems and economic problems worldwide. Developing countries like ours are vulnerable. The consequences of war affect the world and the poorest countries greatly suffer. We are happy that Tanzania is a peaceful country. We do experience climate change consequences that increase poverty. Land use conflicts are becoming more common in most regions between farmers and herders or conservation authorities and pastoralists.

To date, the Olasiti Children’s Foundation programs are running well with moderate adjustment.

Our vision and mission is to promote education, health and sustainable life skills to underprivileged orphans, and vulnerable children in Arusha.

Thank you so much for helping us in 2022. Without you, our project to save children could not happen or become well implemented. We are hopeful you can keep supporting us. We invite you to visit Tanzania to meet friendly people, magnificent landscapes, and wildlife for business and leisure holidays.

Stay blessed!

Zenan Gasper, Director
