My name is Millie. My first trip to Tanzania was in February, 2013 and Safari Kay included a visit to UAACC.
All of Kay’s guests brought suitcases full of clothes, books, toys and medicine for Pete, Charlotte and the children.
I was overcome with emotion when I met 21 of the cutest children. The children were so well behaved as they sat quietly while Pete O’Neal told the group his story. The children also had high aspirations of future careers and on helping their community and country.
I also met Pete O’Neal, a former member of the Black Panther Party and the founder of UAACC and learned his story about the Black Panthers.
UAACC is donation based. Since 2013, I have re-visited Tanzania and UAACC two more times. I decided that I wanted to assist in their education and have sponsored three children paying for their higher education.
I am very thankful for Safari Kay, my amazing tour leader, Pete & Charlotte O’Neal and the children of UAACC for this phenomenal learning experience. I look forward to returning and visiting with the children, Pete and Charlotte in the near future.
If you’ve been inspired by our guest’s stories, please feel free to donate to our worthy organization. No matter how small, even $1 from everyone who reads this will go towards the education and living expenses for our children in Tanzania. Donate Here.
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.
