Ugandilwa - Seriane & Deborah

The Olive Branch for Children, founded by Deborah McCracken (pictured here with daughter, Seriane), helps remote communities in Tanzania assess their primary needs and establish programs that target the most vulnerable. They focus on HIV/AIDS prevention and care, early childhood education, food security and vulnerable children and women. The goal is to establish community-led programmes that empower remote communities and generate models that can be replicated in communities throughout Tanzania and beyond.
