There are approximately three million orphans in Tanzania. Only a few thousand make it into the protection of an orphanage. The rest remain wandering on the streets -- with no home, no food, no clothes, no parents.

While in Tanzania in 2012, I had the life-altering opportunity to photograph at four of the eight orphanages that The Foundation for Tomorrow partners with: Nikoranga Orphanage, Matonyak Children's Home, Seeway Tanzania and Irente Children's Home. While these children were left behind, they are considered the lucky ones, to be living in an organ age, cared for and offered a bit of hope.
