We are excited to announce that the Khaki Foundation just gave the Health Tanzania Foundation a grant to expand our program that trains volunteers from the churches, mosques, and community. The volunteers identify widows, orphans, and unmarried children with children and get them into preventive and medical care. The grant also expands the Ukombozi (Saver) program, which mobilizes all community members to fight alcohol and other drugs, violence, and AIDS. It helps those with problems start 12 step (AA like) self-help groups. If evaluation proves that the two programs are successful, it, hopefully, will be renewed for a second year. If it continues to be successful, grants will be sought to expand it country-wide.
