TEMBO (Canada) has been fortunate in having had dedicated leaders since its inception. As a grassroots organisation, it continues to grow in strength and mandate. New programming has been developed over the years in the Longido District, and the many successes of the girls and women in the community are the true measure of the importance of our efforts on their behalf.
Looking ahead to the period covered by the new Strategic Plan, we know that there have been, and will continue to be, economic challenges affecting our core business of fundraising to support the programmes and projects in Longido. Added to these challenges are the changing demographics in Canada and Tanzania accompanied by shifts in fundraising priorities.
Our focus over the next three years will be on building for the future, ensuring sustainability, and modernizing the organisation whilst retaining clear direction and progressing its vision of continuing to foster educational opportunities in Longido. Much progress has been made; much more remains to be done.
