Bring hope to rural Africa  


Construction projects have been part of the mission of the founders for over 17 years. CHaRA has built 4 schools on the mainland of Tanzania and 3 on the Island of Zanzibar. We’ve been involved in many remodel projects such as: a space for ENT -examination and hearing labs in two Island hospitals, medical clinic cleaning, painting and updates, a therapy department complete building uplift, a computer classroom, basketball court, sewing center, several toilet buildings, an office and workshop completed out of shipping containers. Water projects have been the highlight of many Island projects since a well drilling machine was purchased by a donor and a well team established in 2010.

Bringing clean water to a community or school touches entire villages with better health and relief in life’s burdens. In 2013 CHaRA construction projects moved into the government schools to provide a clean/good water source, sanitation, and hand-washing stations. This was a great move that affects thousands of children, teachers, and the community. Ron leads the construction team with the help of Hkelfon. John and Mary Beth Flippen raise funds and have led several drilling projects. John Burnham from California was a big part of the water team, raises funds and spends a lot of time on the ground with the Zanzibar national construction team. They are all an important part of this new area of creating a better environment for school children. We have now finished 18 water projects including sanitation and hand washing stations.

This year we  finished remodeling 2 classrooms at the special education school. Now we will begin the building of the Love & Joy Center in Oloirobi. All this because of great people like the Flippens, Burnhams, Shumans, Stapeltons and you, our donors. Please use the donation button to be part of bringing safe water to the children of Tanzania.
