FAD Board Members

FAD is partnering with the LOOCIP Community devoting time and resources to the Maasai in Tanzania. Working alongside local Christians in the Longido District, we are helping to provide the necessary resources for their spiritual and physical development.

Where does FAD work?

If you are reading this, you may be interested in helping. You can make a difference. People’s lives can be changed and life-giving water, both spiritual and natural, can be offered to the people in this community.
