The founder of Faraja Orphans Rescue Ministry (FORM), Mrs. Sarah Mpanilehi, experienced life in Tanzania as an orphan when both of her parents passed away. Driven by the desire to be the hands of Jesus to other orphans of Tanzania, Sarah and her husband Samuel, in August of 2005, began their ministry with their own savings. They appropriately named their mission Faraja Orpahns Rescue Ministry. In Kiswahili, Faraja means comfort, which is what they desire to provide.
Today, Sarah and Samuel are joined by ten full time staff members and twelve board members. Together they provide the basic educational, medical, nutritional, and spiritual needs for sixty-two children.
- Basic needs of food, clothing and education
- Assistance with medical care, hospital coasts and health education, especially for those carrying HIV/AIDS.
- Families who provide love, care and shelter.
- Spiritual care, encouragement and education.
- Guidance in becoming self-sustaining adults.
- Create awareness in the community about HIV/AIDS
