Our partners in Tanzania are a key part of our operations. They identify where the needs are greatest and where our giving can make most difference, and ensure that our funding is used as intended. By supporting each with a small monthly donation, we help them to help their communities and take an active role in developing and empowering them to help those in their orphanages and communities.
