My experience at UAACC was amazing. It has been nearly 6 years since I’ve traveled to Tanzania, but I remember it like it was yesterday. Listening to the stories of Pete O’Neal is like none other. He is such a storyteller that he easily captivates you into his story and experiences that led him to Leaders of Tomorrow children’s home.
And then there are the children. So many things to share with them but my favorite memory is when I asked one of girls who had taken a liking to me, if I could take a picture with her. The picture started with her, then with about three girls, to about 10 kids until I was surrounded by nearly all the children and then all of the other guests that were traveling with us as well. It was such a special moment.
When deciding to travel to Tanzania and UAACC, the question should never be if you should go. It should be when should you go. And the time is definitely now.”

It was 2008 when my parents asked me to live in UAACC. At that time I was 5 years old. I did not know how to talk I was very scared. But after few days I captured the environment over there in UAACC. In UAACC I lived with other people but always my fellow leaders of tomorrow.
In 2017 I was in from 1 at ngongongare secondary school. In from ii I done my national examination and I got division I when. I entered form iii. UAACC and friends of UAACC decided to shift me to another school known as renea girls secondary school at njiro.
Visiting with the children on two of our trips to Tanzania made our trips complete. One would think the safaris, wild animals, or the food would be top on the list, but, it’s not. The graciousness of our host, whom I respectfully call “Mr. Pete,” and his wife,
Mama Kay asked us to share our words about our experience from the time we lived at the Leaders of Tomorrow Children’s Home. These are my words.
