Our Story

Our Programs

Sponsor a Student

We believe that education is key to one day ending poverty. We support orphaned and disadvantaged youth to complete their higher education and transition into university and beyond. Our support includes housing, education, food and utlities and all levels of support to help them build a future for themselves and their community. LEARN MORE

Family 4 Family

IBSH currently sponsors over 70 children across 23 families in Tanzania, 17 of which are led by single mothers. For as little as $5 per week, your family can make a world of difference to a family in a third world country. This small weekly donation provides assistance with education, healthcare, food and shelter. Help us to foster bright, healthy futures for all these families. LEARN MORE
