Our charity projects for Katumbi Village

Our first projects support the Katumbi Village in the Kigoma Region, West Tanzania. It is a remote area just outside the Mahale Mountains National Park on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, where people mainly rely on agriculture and some fishery. Education is a privilege and sources of income are limited. Katumbi officially became a village only in 2008, therefore the infrastructure still is poor. Both the primary school and dispensary are poorly equipped and in urgent need of support.

You will find a summary of all our projects supporting Katumbi Village here.
