We exist to equip marginalized women through the hope of the gospel, artisanal training, and tools to launch their own local business.


Our Story


Sifa was started by women for women. We are passionate about the training, equipping and releasing of our students. Sifa invests in women so that they can become successful small business owners who will invest in their communities. We are faith-based, gospel-centered, and driven by a desire to see the tools of Sifa used in the hands of women, churches, and businesses all throughout our city of Dar es Salaam.

The Program


Two years can change everything. Learn more about our curriculum and the impact that Sifa has in the lives of our students.

Sifa didn’t just change the life of our daughter, it changed our entire family. You may think that Sifa is only training young women, but everything she learned was brought back into our home and we were being transformed by the gospel, by learning to read God’s Word and pray together and by gaining knowledge she brought home from her training.”
