Our mission is to provide life-changing opportunities for rural Tanzanians through Education, Health Care, and Community Development. We work primarily in the impoverished village of Nyamagongo, near Shirati in the Rorya district of northern Tanzania, close to Lake Victoria and the Kenyan border.

Tanzania has a population of about 50 million and the official languages are Swahili and English. After independence in 1961, under President Nyerere's leadership, the country benefited from decades of stability and peace. Tanzania remains a model of political and social stability in the region. However lack of economic development and investment remains a challenge.
