Neema Means Grace


A Baby Home, a Mothering Center, a free Day Care for MAP moms who have special needs babies, Safe Birthing Training for Traditional Maasai Birthers and Opportunities to Serve for Volunteers, in Arusha, Tanzania

Our mission statement:

  • Rescuing abandoned, orphaned, and at-risk babies
  • Reuniting children with extended families and promoting in-country adoptions
  • Restoring hope to women through education, business opportunities, parenting skills, day care assistance, and spiritual guidance
  • Relearning basic health/delivery procedures for traditional birthers. 

Neema Village Tanzania, Inc, is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit in the USA and a registered NGO in Tanzania.  Neema in Swahili means Grace and any good done has been done by the Abundant Grace of God!

Neema Village began as a rescue center for abandoned, orphaned and at risk babies in Arusha, Tanzania, East Africa. During that time, hundreds of babies have been rescued, many abandoned babies have now been adopted through the Tanzania Social Welfare system and others who had lost their mothers during the birth were saved and have now been able to return home to an extended family member. We love the idea of “Families not Orphanages.”

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
