We started collaborating with the Hananasif Oprhanage Center (HOCET) in Tanzania in 2010. A Danish school leader, Christina Aaling Wolff, had heard about our container shipments with medical equipment. She had a large quantity of school furniture, and she contacted us to ask if we could use it for one of our projects. We got in touch with the founder of HOCET, Hezekia Mwalugaja, and it turned out that this furniture was something the orphanage really needed.
We packed the container in Copenhagen in October 2010 and it arrived in Tanzania a few months later. We got tremendous support for this project: The Danish bag company JEVA donated 100 new school bags, so each of the students could get one. Canon donated two large printers, so the teachers at HOCET now can print out school assignments rather than writing them all by hand. Gentofte Hospital donated a lot of toys for the children.
Curing this collaboration we got to know Hezekia and his staff. They are doing such amazing work for orphaned children in Tanzania and we have continued to work with them.
