Mainsprings has spent the last 11 years developing our campus model and experiencing the impact it has on our children, staff, local community, and even larger district. When the government heard about Mainsprings’ plans to expand, they were eager to work with us and identified areas of great need. From those recommendations, we selected a piece of land in the village of Kahunda, in the newly formed district of Buchosa. Struggling farmers, poor education, a lack of healthcare, minimal infrastructure, and many children without families revealed that this was an area in need of intervention. Starting in late 2016, Mainsprings initiated the permaculture piece of our campus model to ensure that we are as sustainable as possible from an early stage at this new campus- a lesson learned from the development of our first campus. Currently, Mainsprings is in the process of growing the rest of our model, starting with the girls’ home, then the school, then healthcare.  Over the next decade, we intend to complete this campus along with two other campuses in order to affect the lives of thousands of children and their families across Tanzania and greater East Africa.
