The Huruma Women Group is a community-based organisation of Tella Mande in rural Moshi, initiated and directed by Mary Saria and Berther Mawenya. The aim of Huruma (swahili for ‘compassion’) is to help the disadvantaged and vulnerable families in the community. ZARA has been a friend and supporter of Huruma Women Group for several years. In July, Huruma Women group welcomed their first international volunteer, Julia from Germany who has degrees in social work and educational sciences. Before starting with Huruma, she first spent 3 months in Dar-es-Salaam accompanying the social workers of the SOS Children’s village at their ‘Family Strengthening Outreach Program’. Then during a further 3 months in Tanzania with the Huruma Women Group, she tried to assign certain principles that worked at the big organisation in the capital to the small rural initiative of Mary and Berther. As a result of Julia’s voluntary work, Huruma now even have their own website, as she convinced a friend of hers who is web designer, Jacek Jonczyk to create a webpage for the charitable group free of charge. The website is now online at ZARA thanks Julia for her big support, Jacek for his effort and Gabriel of World Unite! for translating the website’s English texts into Swahili.
