Give youth shelter and meaningful work by assisting in the completion of this home on the farmland purchased in Tanzania. Building for Generations (BFG) is a 501c3 U.S. based non-profit started by the mother of an adult with Downs Syndrome and has operated for close to 18 years. They are partnered with a mother of a son with Autism and a native Tanzanian who founded Connects Autism Tanzania (CAT). Erick, who the home is named after is her son. BFG has purchased the land, brought in water, planted, and is ready to put the roof on the home and complete the interior with your help. This home will serve up to 25 youth with adequate shelter that are training in agriculture and/or that are students at the CAT skills center. The role of BFG is to complete the facility which will then be run by CAT and the Tanzanian community. The farm and store has potential to serve more students as the skills center grows. Seventeen years ago when founder of BFG visited Tanzania no child with a disability was attending school in Arusha, Tanzania. BFG built the first special needs unit and since that time and through the advocacy of a Tanzanian mother and founder of (CAT) the local government has built 17 more units. As students aged out of the system, housing and employment became the emerging need. BFG and CAT are meeting that need with employment training and placement. Help us continue the momentum by supporting Erick's Farmhouse and store. Thank you
