Founder & Director

Elirehema was born & raised in Arusha Tanzania, East Africa.

As a Christian, I strongly believe that God created the world for everyone, & His greatest desire is that all men should be provided for daily as stated in the Lord’s Prayer, “give us this day our daily bread”. I also believe that God will pronounce judgment upon those who exploit abuse & neglect the poor as mentioned in the Bible. I believe that the religion that is pure & undefiled before God the Father, is one that visits & cares for orphans, widows & the afflicted and to keep ourselves unstained from the world (James 1:27).

In Isaiah 1:17 “we are instructed to be good, seek justice, correct oppression, defend the fatherless and plead the widow’s cause.”

In Job 29:12 we are cautioned that God delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless also and helped him that had none to help him.

In Exodus 22: 22-24 it states that “Ye shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child. If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry and my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows and your children fatherless.”  Finally in Mathew 5:8, the Lord stated, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.”

These bible verses really inspired me to embark on the formation of Green Path For Community Success, Arusha (GP-COSU) to bring true hope to the deprived, destitute and marginalised; those discriminated against, the vulnerable women, girls, youth, the starving orphans and children do not have nowhere to turn for help, support & basic sustenance.

My vision and desire is to help the vulnerable children get quality education and training so that they can have a bright future and hope and be self-sustained.


Because many hands make light work. Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.
