In January I am going to be volunteering with Neema House Orphanage and Walk In Love Outreach located in Arusha, Tanzania for 3 months. I will be working with vulnerable, orphaned and abandoned babies with the aim of assisting their families to continue care at around two years of age. I will be helping the children and families learn important life skills to not only get through their day but for the rest of their lives.

I am bringing my own art supplies to share with these beautfiul children and plan on doing/teaching art to them and others in the community. Please help me raise enough money to get to Africa and to be able to bring as many art supplies and other needed supplies as I can in order to help as much as possible! The money is going towards: art supplies, costs of shipping/checking supplies (art, clothing, bottles, toys, etc), cost of living while I am there (rent), a percentage of my flight, other random expenses(visas), since I will not be making an income for three months, a small percentage of the money will help me stay on my feet and continue to pay some of my bills here in the states (student loans). All other money will directly go into the orphanage itself to help with their expenses and to buy clothes, food, bottles, fabrics to make clothing, even for the families to put towards buying homes or starting small businesses.

If you are interested in donating to or getting in touch with Neema House Orphanage or Walk In Love Outreach please email me at: ashleypferro@gmail.com

Thank you for your love,
Ashley Ferro
