Church Building

Since 1988 we have been helping congregations, that have started to build church buildings but are unable to complete it without financial and professional help. With the help of God and our construction team, we were able to help finish building 300 churches in the past 30 years.

Training pastors

In addition, we support young people with a calling to ministry in their pastoral training, support spiritual pioneering work and church planting projects.

Helping people in Need


Education is an essential key to a secure future. We finance school education for children through sponsorships. We enable a child to attend schools to get a good education. We personally know all those in need, their families and regularly go and visit them. We know the families and school environment and continuously monitor the kid’s development.

Helping the poor

Poverty in Tanzania is high and very often shattering. We help people in acute emergencies finding ways to help them help themselves by:
• Finance sewing courses and purchase sewing machines to establish independent work
• Help with housing
• Financing medical care, medication or hospital stays
• Buying food in case of acute famine


We finance ourselves exclusively through donations.

Since 1995 we have focused our ministry exclusively on Tanzania. This enables us to pool our available resources and use them in a more focused manner.
Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in Africa. But it is rich and beautiful with its diversity of landscape and culture. Tanzania is about three times the size of the Federal Republic of Germany and is bordered by eight other East African countries, framed by the three largest African lakes and the Indian Ocean.

The population of Tanzania is growing rapidly - but poverty and diseases such as malaria and AIDS result in a high mortality rate. More than 20 percent of the population has already been infected with the HI virus.
Tanzania has compulsory schooling for seven years - but because of the rural exodus, there are not nearly enough school places available for all children. Many children must grow up in cities without schooling.
