Living hope for children with albinism

aka Living Hope   |   Great Falls, VA   |  shadetz.org

Mission

The mission of SHADE is to transform lives by bringing the tangible love and living hope of Christ to people with albinism in Tanzania. The Shade campus is a community centered on family where holistic ministry brings health of the spirit, soul, and body. We are working to provide a permanent place of hope, including a school, housing, church, play fields, homes for missionaries and visitors, and fields for growing crops. It will also be a safe place for people with albinism to live, get a quality education, and learn life skills. Our goal is to be unified community, interceding for change in Tanzania to protect these innocent children. We look forward to having teams visit and an internship program for those who have a heart for missions and Tanzania.
