So many people stepped up to help us make the goal of MATCHING $40,000 in pledges offered to Kulea Villages IF we could raise a Matching amount and you did it! A total of $43,443 was donated plus the $40,000 was given. This $83,443 is so important toward our 2023 budget of $125,000 for the Operations and Critical Needs fund. We are busy every day in Tanzania and Kenya helping babies, children and their families. Thanks to your generosity, we can keep saying YES to referred babies or children.


With just 4 days left in our Matching Funds campaign, we are only short $4,750! Praise God! Thank you so much for every person who has given. If you have not, but would like to, please follow the link for Critical Needs and Operations and give any amount up to $4,750 and it will be matched!  JUNE 30th marks the end of this important fundraiser. We could not do what we do without your support!


Through our Match Campaign (April 25 - May 30) we attempted to raise $80,000. We are so close with just $12,400 left to raise, so today I am re-opening the MATCH period for ten more days until June 30th. It is so important that we reach this goal to cover the operational cost of feeding 50 babies each week and covering all school fees, home visits, etc.

This Critical Needs fund had $10,884 in it when the Match Campaign began. So, to know if we have reached the $80,000 goal, look at what it shows online today (scroll up) and subtract $10,884. Then add $10,000 because we have a pledge of $10,000 to be given June 30. That will tell you if we are there or not. Overall in 2023, we need a total of $125,000 for operations. We REALLY appreciate your support! -Deborah


Kulea Villages is a faith-based ministry supporting orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya and Tanzania. Funds from this campaign help us cover urgent, unexpected needs for the children or their caregivers as well as operational costs.

As we are out in the villages with our social workers checking on families, we often stumble upon a crisis that is just heart-breaking. Example: finding someone so weak from hunger that they first need medical help and additionally need food. Another example is finding a mother and her children sleeping on the ground - in need of a bed, mattress and sheets. We are thankful that we can address each situation immediately without first having to go raise the funds to do so.

In 2021 this fund supported the opening of our new Kulea Villages Maisha Matters Center in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania! A portion of this fund will continue to support the operational costs of this center (the facility).

This fund also supports basic operational expenses in the US, Kenya and Tanzania (salaries, insurance, office supplies, and fundraising). Operational Support funding is often the hardest for a non-profit organization to raise. 

Thank you so much for your one-time gift or for setting up a recurring donation!
