Mwanza Area Community Health Project

While not a hospital, the Mwanza Area Community Health Project is a community-based initiative that involves a Project Health Director using a variety of resources and volunteers to provide health care to the 100 villages in the targeted area.  These goals are achieved by...

  • Providing teaching that will improve health and nutrition.

  • Fostering worldview shift, countering the overriding cultural belief in witchcraft.

  • Mobilizing local communities to take ownership of their own health.

  • Sensitizing local Tanzanian churches to their opportunity to respond to the poor and vulnerable in their midst.

  • Realizing measurable decreases in waterborne illnesses, malnutrition, and childhood death.

  • Building skills and capacity of local church leadership through involvement in the program.
