The Olive Branch for Children helps remote communities in Tanzania assess their primary needs and establish programs that target the most vulnerable. We focus on HIV/AIDS prevention and care, early childhood education, food security and vulnerable children and women. The goal is to establish community-led programs that empower remote communities and generate models that can be replicated in communities throughout Tanzania and elsewhere.
