I recently traveled with a small group to Tanzania on behalf of Africa Bridge. Our mission was to develop videos and stills to inform case studies about the economic development work they do in the villages of rural Tanzania. Through a 5-year program, Africa Bridge helps to lift vulnerable children and their caregivers out of dire poverty. It's an excellent organization and cause, and the benefits were clearly evident on the ground.

I will post several shots from the villages over the next few days. Of course, every trip to Africa should include safari and ours did as well. The animals will be coming soon :-)

While the land is fine for growing bananas and tea, the prices these fetch are paltry. The result is that villagers in southwest Tanzania live on very little, often less than a dollar a day. The result is malnutrition and little schooling. Africa Bridge aims to overcome that by developing agricultural co-ops for cows, chicken, avocados and other items that teach basic business skills and bring greater revenue. The result is a higher standard of living, improving diets, and greater education for the children. For more info, see Africabridge.org.

These children are in the Kisondela Ward of the Tanzanian highlands.

This young man has been part of the Africa Bridge program in the Kisondela Ward of Tanzania for nearly 3 years. At the beginning, he and his family only had food for one meal a day. Now, after being part of a cow co-op for several years, they have 3 meals a day, at least one including protein. He looks healthy and strong.
