Global Missions

Gloria Dei and our members support a variety of community and non-profit organizations across the globe.

Tanzania Connections

The Tanzania Teaching Foundation (TTF) is non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities in Tanzania, East Africa, through targeted education programs for youth.  By providing intensive English language learning, they aim to enhance the educational capacity of Tanzanian youth living in the south-central highlands of Tanzania. 

At Lutheran World Relief, they envision a future where all people, in every corner of the world can live full, dignified lives. Their goal is to help people build self‐sufficiency and create new community‐owned approaches to problem‐solving that will last long after our projects end.

Tanzania Teaching Foundation (TTF) looks for volunteers who would like to teach
English in the south central highlands of Tanzania. This is an exciting 3-month service
opportunity that will change your life and world view. Individuals do not need to be a certified teacher, but need to love 12-14 year-olds, be adventuresome and expect the unexpected.

If you are interested in learning more about TTF, please contact Nancy Winters at (360) 943-3053.
