Our corporate sponsors find great satisfaction in being involved with our operations and receiving feedback as to how their generosity has made a real difference.


Specifically, we are seeking a corporate partner to team up with us on our “Containers to Tanzania” operation whereby we send out via Dar-es-Salaam regular container-loads of donated goods.

Also, we seek a corporate partner to provide or sponsor vehicles, usually Toyota Land Cruisers, without which we cannot service our offices and the remote parishes and villages.

£80 funds a bike for a student or one of our Parish-workers who often have to travel long distances to school or other villages on poor roads.


£100 buys a breeding dairy-goat for a widow and a special goat-hut so they can be more self sustaining.


£2,200 pays for a safe new house for a family of orphans so they do not have to worry about heavy rains or wild animals.


£3,400 digs a shallow well that enables villages access to drinking water free from diseases for their children for the first time.
