Grassroots Tanzania team and a team from Grassroots UK are joined together this week in the annual task of interviewing every one of the over 2500 children sponsored in Tanzania.
Here are some pictures.
Sue has been coming out to Tanzania with Grassroots regularly over many years to help with interviewing the children on the scheme. She started sponsoring one little boy who had just started school. It’s been great to watch him grow. Here they are many years later working together interviewing children currently sponsored. Live changing partnerships and friendships.
Dr Frank is leader of the Grassroots team of doctors who provide GP level care for each of the sponsored children as part of the sponsorship. He is a star.

Mark is one of the trustees of Grassroots UK, and also tries to join the annual team that visits to interview the sponsored children. His usual job is to be one of two photographers who take about 10 pictures of each child and their family, in the hope that we will have two or three we can give to their sponsor. He then takes the cameras to the computer and makes sure we know which photo belongs to each child. About 25000 photos will be taken! A big responsibility. Pray for him!
On Monday we visited an area called Shewa to interview the children there. The church at the moment is a thin wooden frame covered in tarpaulin. The pastor was busy building foundation pillars ready for the church to be built on.
