Washington, DC – October 19th, 2020 – Washington-based 5013C, Shaping Futures Foundation, sent a team to Tanzania this month to distribute supplies to orphans in need.
In Tanzania, an estimated over 1,300,000 children are orphaned due to HIV, conflict, and natural disasters. This statistic has contributed to Africa having one of the highest educational exclusions in the world with over one-fourth of school-aged children unable to attend school.
Shaping Futures Foundation is a private sector-led initiative that collaborates with the United Nations sustainable development goals to cultivate education, from academics to health and wellness, in Tanzania and Zanzabar.
Recognizing the dire need of orphans in Tanzania for basic necessities including clothes, shoes, and hygiene products, Shaping Futures Foundation Founder and CEO, Cordell Robinson organized a team to raise donations and transport them to Africa for distribution. Donations were provided by OOOG Clothing, A Step Beyond Clothing, Starter Athletics, Adidas,Tara Thomas Agency, and many more donors.
‘Team Shaping Futures Foundation’ arrived in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on October 8th, passing through customs with over 270lbs of donations for children in need.

“I am very thankful and humbled by the amazing support and donations we have received,” stated Robinson. “The next thing on the list is to build these children to school so that they can have the same education there as we get in America.”
Donations are still being accepted as necessities continue to be shipped from the US to Africa. The team will be returning to the area in 2021 with the hope of starting phase II of the outreach; to build the first American school in East-Africa.
Those wishing to provide a non-monetary donation of clothing, shoes, and more can do so through the Shaping Future Foundations website at www.shapingff.org
