JBFC’s 10th Anniversary: 10 Years of Community ChangeMay 13, 2016 11:56 am
Editor’s Note: As part of JBFC’s ongoing celebration of our 10th Anniversary, JBFC’s Board of Directors look back at a decade of making a difference in rural Tanzania. To read more about JBFC’s progress over the last ten years, click here.
In May of 2006, then Assistant Director, Jacob Ngalaba, and I were simply looking for a place to start. We wanted a piece of land on the shores of Lake Victoria, and we wanted a remote location. That was it. We dreamed of creating a refuge for orphaned and vulnerable girls, a simple and safe haven for them to call home – never thinking of the impact we could have on an entire community.
While much of this internal change has been sparked by JBFC, that’s all we can claim – we are a spark. We are a spark for helping people to improve their livelihoods. We are a spark for the local economy. And we are a spark that educates and empowers people and communities to reach for more.
