Abraham Molel, Tanzanian Staff Community Liaison

Lalafofofo Tansanian staff member Abraham Molel


Finally, Lalafofofo’s local community liaison, Abraham Molel, joined the Tanzanian staff in June, 2015. Abraham is a respected Maasai village elder in Boma Ng’ombe and his family lands are adjacent to Sanya Station public school. Abraham is often seen riding his “piki piki” or motorbike checking on the school, hence providing us with first-hand observations on our progress. Welcome to Abraham! Because he will be working for Gaudy Mtunga, Lalafofofo’s program manager, we feel confident that our mission will flourish as a result.

Lalafofofo is fortunate to have this committed, high caliber Tanzanian staff in the heart of Moshi. These are the people who will monitor our active projects, and also continually explore new opportunities. As a result of their efforts, Lalafofofo can make a real difference in the lives of people living in Tanzania.
