Musoma

Background

 

In 1994 Graham McClure, founder of Go MAD, helped design and build a Cathedral for the Anglican Diocese of Mara, in the city Musoma with his Church St John’s Church, Blackheath. From this work Graham felt driven to help the people of Mara and ‘Go Make A Difference in Tanzania’ was born.

 

Tanzania is situated on the equator in East Africa, divided roughly in to two regions. The coastal region is predominantly Muslim and the inland or highland region which is predominantly Christian. Traditional beliefs are still strong and are often mixed with Christian beliefs. Go MAD works within remote and rural villages surrounding the town of Musoma in the region of Mara (stretching from Lake Victoria to the Serengeti).

 

Go MAD work alongside the Anglican Diocese of Mara, helping local small-holder farmers, people living with HIV and AIDS, orphans, pastors and their congregations. We help people of all or no faith.
