Hope for Elderly as an NGO which was registered in 2010. Its history
goes back to 2004 when four close friends critically scrutinized the
lives of some elderly people living in their area and decided to assist
them because they were living in a very desperate situation without
enough food, sugar, money for milk and tea leaves during the rainy of
the year i.e. April, May and June which are customarized with food
shortages and hiked commodity prices around the area.
were able to donate a small amount of money to purchase these items for
few grannies. At the end of the second year they saw blessings from God
and their financial needs were met, so they welcomed other people for
the purpose of reaching a greater number of people who were experiencing
food shortages during those months. Eight people became interested and
their number of volunteers became 12 in total.
general survey around the area showed that many people required this
type of assistance. This forced this group of about 12 volunteers
(members) at that time to look into other ways of raising funds to meet
ever increasing demands of the grannies.
efforts paid up in September 2006 when their proposal was approved for
funding by DORCAS AID INTERNATIONAL (an NGO based in Holland with its
Country Office in Arusha).
agreed to sponsor a first group of 20 grannies who are living mainly in
Sub-location of Nrumangeny in Sakila village. Since then, the number of
sponsored grannies has increased annually and December 2011 we serve
about 214 grannies from 11 villages in four wards of Kikatiti, Maroroni,
King’ori and Maji ya Chai in King’ori division, Meru district.J2
