In the wake of Nelson Mandela's passing, the Africare/Tanzania office remembers him this way:

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela is an inspirational leader from whose life story I learnt the true meaning of forgiveness; A role model who put Service above Self and laced it with wisdom to know that with authority comes responsibility and knew when to pass the button, for there are other more able leaders in life who know better how to deal with the ever evolving challenges of humanity.
– Sekai Chikowero

Success in Tanzania

Africare/Tanzania’s greatest success has been its adaptability to the changing development strategies of funding partners in response to the most pressing development priorities of the country. Africare’s ability to build a diverse portfolio and attract some of the most competent technical teams has impressed collaborators, donors and other development organizations. Due diligence, transparency and decisive action has earned Africare respect in one of the most challenging operating environments. Africare’s operations in Tanzania have seen rapid growth recently, raising $72 million of Africare/Tanzania’s total $93 million in the last four years. This growing portfolio, a diverse donor base, and excellent relationships with communities, local government authorities and implementing partners will enable Africare to continue providing development services to communities, including the most needy and those living in difficult areas to access.
