Meet Our Champions: The People Behind the Progress at KBTA

United in Mission: Our Team and Supporters
Kilimanjaro Blind Trust Africa runs on the enthusiasm, dedication, and efforts of a small team of dedicated staff  and is fueled by goodwill and love from a large number of people. In addition, the generosity of a very large number of individuals and companies plays a vital role in achieving impact. A magnitude of work and effort is required to make a significant  difference. Most importantly, among the large numbers of visually impaired children and young adults the number of those we serve is increasing day by day.
