Safaris With A Heart
Lynn has been a project manager with New Horizons Foundation since 2012 representing TAFCOM-MN. The desire now is to expand the reach of the charitable giving beyond the Kilimanjaro region to include all regions within Tanzania. Therefore a Tanzanian Limited by Guarantee Company (non-profit) called Outreach Africa has been established. Currently several projects are in process. One project is familiar and long-standing, providing program support to the MaaSAE Girls Lutheran Secondary School in Monduli, Tanzania (established in 1995 by Minnesotans); some of the newer projects that will continue were piloted in January of this year and provided solar lighting to remote villages on the western shores of Lake Victoria and soccer balls to schools, refugee camps and places of worship throughout Tanzania. Upcoming January 2018 projects will provide health insurance to an infant orphanage in Bukoba and hearing devices and educational tools to deaf schools in both Bukoba and Arusha. Future projects include water filtration systems, latrines, reading glasses and possibly a micro loan program. All needs are identified by and administered by local community leaders. Projects are managed locally as well as by Outreach Africa directors and are visited multiple times a year.
