Thanks for your interest in Friends of Imiliwaha!
We invite you to explore our website and to consider ways to become involved in this inspiring mission in Imiliwaha, a village in rural Tanzania, where our friends, Sisters Afra (L) and Beatrice (R), and their religious community, the Benedictine Sisters of St. Gertrude, have worked so hard to improve the quality of life for villagers.
Since FOI's beginning days, our efforts have expanded to Sumbawanga, a city in the western part of Tanzania, where S Afra is leading the efforts to build and operate a school for girls.
Friends of Imiliwaha NFP is an all-volunteer group of professional, business and nonprofit leaders who crossed paths with, and became inspired by, the incredible efforts of these two women who came to study in Lisle, IL back in 2003. To support their efforts, Friends of Imiliwaha, FOI, formed in 2010, incorporated in 2012, and is involved in supporting educational and health related endeavors as resources are available.
