Mission and Vision

_MG_7317Our Mission:

To improve educational opportunities for Tanzanian children through participatory development initiatives and relationship building between schools and communities in the United States and Tanzania.

Our Vision:

We envision people living in extreme poverty living more vibrant, self-determined lives through increased access to quality education, food and water security, and improved infrastructure.  We view cross-cultural relationships as supportive of this goal and significant in their own right, as they promote personal connection and mutual understanding.

NTC was founded on the principle that creating direct personal relationships with the developing world is the most effective way to ensure transparency, accountability, and projects that are meaningful to ‘donors’ and ‘recipients’ alike. We believe that a more sustainable approach to development is to involve and connect to the communities we work with, rather than working as outside consultants to the problems they face.
