I first came across Forever Angels in 2010 whilst doing some fundraising for a childrens charity. I was completely overwhelmed by the Hathaway’s extraordinary story and the amazing work they do which identifies so clearly with the SPK Foundation and our principles of supporting young lives.
Forever Angels Baby Home is a UK based charity working in Tanzania providing interim care for orphaned and abandoned children and empowering their families to care for their children in their homes.
Forever Angels provides interim care for orphaned and abandoned children in Tanzania. It is the realisation of a dream Amy Hathaway had as a young child after watching images of the Ethiopian Famine. Amy and her husband moved to Tanzania in 2002 to teach at an International School. Whilst there, they visited many orphanages where children were being very poorly cared for. After seeing a huge need for a home specifically for babies, Forever Angels was built and they took in their first child in 2006.
Since then the focus has been on reuniting orphaned and abandoned children with their relatives and setting them up to be able to provide life-long care. After years of working closely with these families, Forever Angels found that child abandonment could be prevented by empowering a family. Maisha Matters was born as a way to work closely with at risk families and provide nutrition and education so families can live independently.
