Forming true partnerships implies an inherent respect, one for the other. Even as we acknowledge the needs of another, we recognize deep equality of spirit. Potentially we all gain in wisdom … love… and hope … as we come together in coöperation and unity.
In the initial stages of forming partnership, it is very much about listening to the needs and wisdom of the local people and then working with them to address the problems they face. In January 2008, a small group of volunteers journeyed to the Uru region at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, to listen, learn and discuss possibilities.
Solutions come by way of vision, commitment, time and generosity. While a quick fix is not possible, our interest in their problems gives the Uru people energy and hope. After every meeting and gathering, the people chanted back to us, “It Can Be Done”!
Our circle of friends and partners both near and far continues to strengthen and grow.
Our cooperating NGO partner for the Uru Water Borehole Project. Committed to improving the lives of Tanzanians through a comprehensive program of volunteering projects tackling social, economic and environmental problems, they strive to strengthen education, healthcare, rural development and capacity building.
Founded in 2011 as a cooperating Tanzanian NGO partner with It Can Be Done! Together we promote and encourage women’s social and economic empowerment through sewing, quilting, craft and business skill building for Fair Trade products and markets.

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame
by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those
people who rekindle the inner spirit .…Albert Schweitzer
