An evening with The Olive Branch 

WhatsApp Image 2021-03-24 at 6.30.44 PM.

Thank you to our global community for making our first Virtual Gala such a great success!  On Friday, April 30th, 2021, we joined together online and raised a total of CAN $51, 295.  This will ensure the success of our programs in 2021. 

Highlights of the evening included taking a virtual tour of Tanzania to see our programs in action.  It was an honour to introduce you to some of our amazing staff, let you see our kids singing and dancing, and show you how our work benefits the community of Mbeya.


Thank you to all of our generous donors  and to Peter and Pauls Catering for the delicious appetizers!
