Our Challenges

Many people in the country of Tanzania still practice traditional beliefs, and animism,  which includes the worship of deceased ancestors. Some people still consult witch doctors and follow their advice. This often results in violence to women and children. For instance, older women who have red eyes are considered witches and are in danger of being killed.
