About Our Auction

Signs of Hope in Africa is excited to host our first online auction! We have loads of fantastic items for you to bid on!

Many local businesses and individuals have donated items towards our auction. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to each and every business and individual who donated! Asante sana!

The money we raise through this auction will help fund the Jambiani Primary School Breakfast Program, which feeds over 600 children every school day and employs six women from the local village. We are also fundraising to purchase solar panels for the school to provide a stable source of energy, and solar cookers to cook the daily breakfast as the six women are currently cooking over wood fires, which is effecting their health.


About Signs of Hope in Africa

We are a Canadian not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and their families living in Jambiani, Tanzania. We are based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

In 2003, our founder, Kristi Falconer, spent 2 months volunteering in Jambiani, working with Deaf children and teaching English to elders in the village. It was during this time that Kristi identified key struggles villagers faced in meeting everyday needs. She quickly realized that some basic projects could provide assistance to meet those needs.

Signs of Hope in Africa began to take shape. Projects to meet basic needs expanded into projects that enable villagers to develop economic self-sufficiency using locally available resources.

With successful implementation of each project, the quality of life for villagers in Jambiani slowly improves. With improvement comes growth that opens opportunities for the villagers and the community, and spills over to neighbouring regions.

Your support is making a positive difference for the lives of many children and their families. We look forward to sharing many more beginnings with you as we continue our work.
