Community of Bukwimba
Now Village of Mwalwigi
An initial assesment of the Bukwimba community and leadership team was completed by YouFeedThem in 2014, and an assesment trip by an HFL project manager in 2016. While awaiting a donor group (church or organization) to partner with the village of Bukwimba Community Based Organization (BCBO), the YFT leadership has moved their facility to the village of Mwalwigi, in the Mwanza region of Tanzania.
The leadership has fulfilled their legal requirements and is registered with the local government, ready and waiting for your support to bring hope to the people in the Mwalwigi area.

The aim of the Mwalwigi CBO is:
"To generate a permanent gain in farm income to reduce poverty and hunger as well as to help the most underprivileged, deprived and vulnerable members of society. Especially orphaned children and widows, by providing food, clothes and education where possible. It will carry out this work with love, commitment and compassion.'

HOW YOU CAN HELP:
You may be overwhelmed with the magnitude of need! “How can I help?” you ask. Of course you can’t do everything, but you can do something. For example: A gift of $ 15.00 can buy 4 mosquito nets and save children from malaria.. There are many opportunities to help. The BCBO thanks you for all you can do to help the people of their community.
