Eden Valley Foster Care Mission is located high in the Livingstone Mountains of Western Tanzania. The Njombe region in which the ministry operates has been devastated in recent years by HIV. In its wake this disease has left thousands of children orphaned and vulnerable who, due to their social status and the complexity of the national school system, have dropped out of secondary school.
Eden Valley Foster Care Mission seeks to empower these young people to lead successful, self-sufficient lives and break the destructive cycles of parentless and broken homes, sexual promiscuity, and visionless lives. This is accomplished through a two-year vocational training program in carpentry, sewing, mechanics, and agriculture. Classes in Bible, moral ethics, and English are also part of the curriculum. With one church member for every 1,818 inhabitants in Njombe, the team’s main goal is to see these young people return to their respective villages equipped to support themselves and impact their communities.
Eden Valley serves the needs of approximately 800 primary school orphans and needy children. Through the distribution of clothes and school uniforms, they strengthen the capacity of extended families and communities to care for these children.
In addition to caring for children, the ministry’s two local Bible workers walk from village to village, from door to door, to assess needs, bring encouragement from God’s Word, and teach Bible and health in the local public schools.
“Most earnest attention must be given to the education which will impart a knowledge of salvation, and will conform the life and character to the divine similitude” (Counsels on Education, p. 113).
