BOMA AFRICA is a tourism non-profit based in Mto Wa Mbo, Tanzania.
Owned by a husband and wife team. They met when Leesha was visiting Tanzania from Canada as a Midwifery student and met Lau, a Mt Kilimanjaro expedition guide. Three children later, the family lives in a beautiful region in Tanzania known for their array of bananas.
Their intention is to open a birth center in their area called BOMA LA MAMA. Proceeds from their tourism business goes towards the construction of the new site.
Leesha also works as a midwife serving the women of Tanzania, and facilitates clinical time for North American Doulas and Midwives.
The first trip that Gabby and Charlotte took to Tanzania was organized through Leesha. We are so grateful for their heart and collaboration to better Women's Health.
SAFE Water Now is an Asheville based non-profit providing expertise, services, and resources to solve the problem of unsafe drinking water in Tanzania.
Their manufacturing partner in Arusha, Tanzania produces a high quality, yet affordable, household ceramic water filter. The filter produces sufficient safe drinking water for a family for 5 years.
We hope to provide these filters throughout the clinics, to provide safe water for staff and mothers, as well as have them available for people to take home.
Our doulas will be teaching hygiene education to the mamas and encouraging the importance of SAFE water for healthy families.
