Key People

Committed to the Cause

The Olive Branch for Children (TOBFC) is an non-governmental organization founded in 2005 by Deborah McCracken. The main objective of the organization is to help remote communities in Tanzania assess their primary needs, such as health, education and living needs, and establish programs designed to assist the most vulnerable in those communities. Today, TOBFC works in over 40 communities in Mbarali District in the Mbeya region of western Tanzania, providing the critical support necessary for these communities to work together, grow and flourish. TOBFC is committed to reducing poverty and enabling the future we want to see for our children and beyond.

TOBFC has over 80 staff members. 

Decisions regarding annual programming are made in Tanzania with our amazing head office team (pictured below).
