TATUA FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM: APPLY!

“Walking with Tatua Kenya has been a trans-formative journey for me in my heart’s desires and also my mind. This is one of the best choices I ever made. Being a part of a team that is not only concerned about the success of its work or mine but my holistic well being.  Working with my colleagues who are now like family through the relationships we have built  in our reflections, has improved both social and other aspects of my life.

Tatua has been a companion through the learning and application of community organizing skills which has made me view mission and development work differently. To not only solve the challenge but to heal and bring the community together so that they can solve any challenges with the available local resources.

To simply choose to burn your candle in a land filled with darkness rather than a land filled with light.”

I was curious about how to create real impact instead of short-term charity Continue reading “LETS DO OUR LITTLE BIT OF GOOD WHERE WE ARE: We owe it to humanity”
