In Canada, our operation is supported by members of the board of directors and our advisors. We do not have paid staff support at this time. Resources permitting our priorities are on communications, fundraising, financial management and general administration.

In Tanzania we are represented by Emmanuel Ole Kileli, Executive Director. Project staff are supported within our local partner organizations.
