Go Make a Difference in Tanzania

"Originally set up as a Christian charity, GoMAD (Go Make a Difference in Tanzania) is now a secular NGO that works with volunteers from all walks of life to provide practical help for local communities. 

 

GoMAD helps those in need to help themselves through practical, sustainable and necessary projects which make a difference.

 

The building of a water tank or a goat shed in a small village can have a massive impact on lives there. GoMAD have built latrine facilities and even clinics which save lives." 

Mark Wright, The Adventure Connection

WHY

'Practical' help

It all started in 1994 when Graham McClure was commissioned to
help design and build a cathedral in Musoma. When visiting local
villages, he saw the need for clean water and felt driven to help the
people of the Mara.
