Neema House-Geita

Neema House is an interim care home built to serve orphaned, abandoned, and at-risk children ages 0-5 in the Geita Region.  It was opened in Geita Town in June 2013 and was initially set up to serve up to 20 children at a time.  Since then, Neema House has expanded its facilities and is currently able to serve up to 40 children, though plans are in process to increase capacity further in 2017 due to growing need and the fact that Neema House is the only home in the Geita Region serving children under the age of 4.  

Neema House works in connection with the local hospital and government social welfare offices to identify children in need and ensure their care and safety.  Though many children are orphaned due to AIDS, malaria, other diseases, or abandonment, some children may have extended family in the area.  

Neema House was designed with the purpose that people from the Geita community will experience the grace and abundance of God through tangible acts of love and service.  It seeks to be involved in the community and a partner with social welfare to address the needs of children in the Region of Geita.
