LTT Team

The UK team works as a family, with all encouraged to participate and contribute equally. None of us 'clock watch' because we believe in what we are doing - and we love seeing the changes that result from our work. 

 

The MCDO team

Most of the Tanzania team work from our office/house in Babati, while three of our CASOs live and work in their communities.
