    New Life Foundation is an international charitable organization which was established in 2001 by Pastor Glorious and Josephine Shoo as a response to the desparate poverty affecting thousands of children in Tanzania.  It exists to provide one of the best methods of eradicating poverty in this developing country.  New Life provides a holistic education and 24/7 care of the most vulnerable children in Moshi and surrounding districts. The foundation encompasses a boarding school (Fountain of Hope), babies home (Fountain of Zoe), a home for at-risk teenage girls (Fountain of Joy) and community outreach program (Fountain of Love).  Over 480 children are now being cared for, educated, and loved at various sites around Moshi.

  • The village global

    Established in 2009 by Jason and Nicole Fitzpatrick, The Village is an agricultural Christian community whose residents live out the book of Acts by having all things in common with the body of Christ. Village 1, located in the Puebla mountains and Village 2, located in Tulancingo, Hidalgo, are strong and growing communities. Currently, there are over 40 children that were in extreme need that Jason and Nicole have taken in as their own, plus 23 children from the 8 live-in staff families who run the Villages day to day. The Fitzpatricks live and rotate between them, helping them with their churches and schools, and showering them with Jesus’ love. They have taken in over 300 children over the past 8 years (of whom, they have helped restore many to their families, helped others mature enough to get jobs and become self-supporting, and the rest are still with them). There are more than 20 strong, established house churches that Jason pioneered in the area, and their leadership teams visit them weekly. Jason and Nicole continue to help feed and clothe the residents of the Village, minister to the churches, care for over 20 widows, and provide basic medical care for residents and the poor in the surrounding areas.

    In 2013, after years of prayer, Jason and Nicole opened a Safe House to protect, care for, bring emotional, spiritual and physical healing, and educate young girls who have been rescued from human trafficking until they are ready to join the family at Village 1 or Village 2. The Safe House is strategically located in an area where vulnerable children are frequently exposed to human and drug trafficking—and where the Fitzpatricks are poised to rescue them. It is near a college where students from Village 1 (who have graduated from high school) now attend. This location serves as a home to these college students, also, and they help disciple and protect the younger children saved from such horrific environments.
