Thanks to Lalafofofo JEC member Naomi Zimmerman, Lalafofofo staff members Justin and Gaudy Mtunga and Abraham Molel, and Lalafofofo advocate n Moshi Anne Street, construction of a new house was completed in April, 2017 for Maasai widow Rose Isaya Palanjo, her two sons Logwasa and Israeli, and her daughter Margaret in the Tanzanian Bush near Boma Ng’ombe.

Through Lalafofofo's "Build a Home for a Maasai Widow" program, our committed volunteers and generous donors once again raised the $2,500 needed to build a safe and sturdy home for a Maasai widow and her children living in extreme poverty.

Before moving into her new home, Rose and her three children lived in an exposed hut similar to this one, offering little to no protection against the elements, wild animals, and predators.
