Oppurtunity in Africa

There is a current oppurtunity in Africa for a family seeking help with their child. The director of a foundation called The Impact Plan has been in contact to reach out for help. In hopes maybe someone would be interested.

Here are the Details:
One of our donors is the biggest business man in tanzania, cover of Forbes magazine kind of guy. His niece has developmental issues and they are wanting to hire someone to come to tanzania to work with their child. She is 3 and 1/2 year old girl who has major developmental delay that results in more like 9 month baby. They have no therapy programs like this in tanzania. They want to know if we know anyone who would he willing to move here to help. I don’t know if this would be a few months, a year or many years because I don’t know what something like this entails and they don’t even have a diagnosis. If someone is interested, I can speak more with the family.

If you feel or know someone interested please contact Destiny Jara at and she will put you in contact with the person seeking the help.
