Tanzania, Africa

(since 2007)

 

Tanzania is just a little larger than twice the size of California.  It is a beautiful country. One that has the largest concentration of wildlife per square kilometer and is the home of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the largest mountain in Africa.  But it is a poor country.  On average one child dies every 12 minutes.  Malnutrition claims the lives of thousands of children each year.  Children die because their diets are lacking in basic nutrients to build a strong immune system and to stay healthy. The consequences of poor nutrition impact not just the lives of children but society as a whole. It effects education, the economy and therefore the general well-being of all the people.

 

FFCC has been working in Tanzania since 2007 and in cooperation with the Tanzanian government, local leadership and communities, we are collectively working to improve the health and welfare of the Tanzanian people.  Our projects have focused on nutritious food to supplement their current food sources, safe water, education, medical care and solar power.

 

We travel to Tanzania twice a year.  You can read more about our projects and our trips by clicking on the topics in our section list.
