The Faces of Meena House
Helping Children in Need
Neema Foundation is pleased to sponsor Meena House - a children's home in Tanzania. There are currently 22 children ranging in age from two through college living in the home.
Our mission is to house, protect, provide healthcare and education, plant seeds of hope and inspire dreams in the children of Meena House. We want the children to know they are no longer orphans. Each one of them are God's most beloved and beautiful creations and they belong in the Meena House family.
Making a Difference for Children in Need
A safe haven for

We are pleased to be able to offer individual beds for all the children.
Showers, sinks, and toilets mean proper bathrooms for everyone.
Adequate space for preparing, storing and serving food.
The Neema Foundation
Judy McGruder, CEO/Trustee
My Neema Foundation journey began in 2012 while on a family vacation to Africa. We visited an orphanage and fell in love with the children and continued to visit through the years. We sent gifts and donations between visits, helped with medical and basic needs during visits, and watched God work through each struggle and season. On Mother's Day 2016, I personally accepted my calling to mother these children. Since then, we've opened Meena House where we continue to care for precious children in need of a loving home.
