We Work Together

Sonshine Ministries International was established in 2005 and was founded to care for children left parentless by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, we bring hope to the sick, the lost, and the forgotten. 
Starting with a vision and not much more, Sonshine has grown to 15 acres, 4 children’s homes (3 completed), a dining hall, visitors home, school class rooms, dairy and farm operations and much more. We provide a safe home for abandoned, abused, orphaned children of Tanzania.

The dedication and the work of team Sonshine is amazing.

I support a child with Sonshine because they have proven to do what they say they will do.

The leadership and staff have one main objective, to provide the very best environment for the children who live there.

This ministry does what a lot of other organizations should have been doing years ago. It's great that Sonshine exists.

They are responsive to the needs of the children, the staff and the donors. Their team not only gives care and assistance, they bring love, hope and joy to kids who have never experienced any of those things ever before.
