Latest Kuza Project Updates

Posted on December 31, 2021
As you know, 2021 has been an extraordinary year. Covid continues as a global pandemic, but we are blessed that it has not been a serious problem in the villages we serve. While we have been spared from the ravages of Covid, the poverty and health issues that remain continue to devastate school age children. We are addressing these health issues with our initiatives and ongoing projects. This year, Kuza Project launched an exciting new initiative. the Sunflower Project, to partner with 100 farm families in the Wanging’ombe district.

Posted on May 28, 2014

“Jambo” and greetings from Tanzania! I’ve recently returned from a great visit in Africa. This was the first time I’ve traveled alone to Tanzania. Usually, I am traveling with a group from the United States and we spend a lot of time adjusting to the culture. But since I was by myself, it was a great opportunity to slow down and take a step back to really pray about our ministry and see God at work in all the things we’re doing. The work we’re doing in all three villages (Mlanagli, Igwachanya, and Lupembe) continues to thrive and reveal how
