The Kilimanjaro Kids Community is an orphanage in Bomang’ombe, Tanzania dedicated to providing a better life for poverty-ravaged children in the Moshi area. The 14 children in the orphanage are given food, shelter, schooling, and tutoring. The orphanage counters some of its expenses by selling livestock and produce from its garden.
How We Found Them
Dean Cardinale, the founder of the Community, has an office next to ours. A true renaissance man, Dean is a climber/adventurer and a true philanthropist. We love his vision and admire his efforts in Tanzania.
How We Hope to Help
Orphans at the Community are able to attend a local school, but they often need help with their homework. Each purchase of the Kilimanjaro pack provides one week of tutoring to help children at the orphanage excel in their studies.
