Assessing the progress of the work

We make it our duty to make an assessment each year of what was undertaken the previous year in the interests of continuity.
We have a sponsorship system in place. We will ensure that the action and developments of the two disability committees of Engaruka and Nainokanoka, formed with the members of the four local institutions/authorities, are brought back.

The 2019 volunteer team

We are currently looking for ten volunteers from the age of 20 ready to commit to Mission Tanzania 2019, regardless of qualifications (although the medical and paramedical professions will be preferred). The commitment is to make it available four weekends in Paris to prepare the fundraising campaign and set up the actions, to make a financial commitment of 1000 euros and to agree to live and work in a group in the community Masai.

The volunteers’ contribution is to:

  1. Show an interest in fragile communities and thus promote the dignity of people
  2. Creating a lasting link with a community to support it towards sustainable development goals
  3. Mainly provide resources, skills and expertise for some areas where they are lacking in Tanzania
  4. To speak to the French partners who will support our work
