Our Mission

The mission of Mater Dei Africa (MDA) is to transform the lives of the poor, including elderly people and vulnerable children, by providing integrated family care and community-based services to enable them to become self-reliant and productive members of society, both economically and socially.

MDA is made up of dedicated individuals spread out around the world, all working together to help the people of Northeastern Tanzania. Learn more about our history, meet our staff, Board of Directors, Board of Trustees, and partners– without whom we could not do this important work!
