Marcel Mlacha – our man on location, in whom we place our trust.
Many years ago Marcel volunteered in our orphanage in Moshi as a young man and proved to be a very committed member of the Tanzanian community, who was also interested in the development of the country. Despite having outstanding education results, the cost of a university education was too high and rendered his dream of tertiary study impossible. We then decided to privately finance his entire bachelor and master studies from 2011 onwards, which he was able to complete very successfully in 2016.
Throughout his studies, and especially after his graduation, Marcel was incredibly helpful in all the ventures and plans we pursued in Tanzania. After all of this, and together with him we founded an NGO in Tanzania and Marcel was director from the very beginning. In this role, Marcel has always managed the entire organisation on site, purely voluntarily and without remuneration, and has taken on an infinite number of tasks and administrative procedures. Thus we could finally achieve the registration as anapproved Orphanage with his help.
Since January 2020, Marcel has been working as a volunteer director as well as Farm manager with payment as a paid employee of SBS. He has very successfully developed the properties of SBS in order to produce food for the whole family using purely organic methods. with sales aiding the financing of the Project. To produce the Project.
Ephraim Mlacha is the father of Marcel, whom we got to know as a very respectful and honourable man, he managed to give all his children a good education and schooling under very simple and difficult circumstances as a farmer.
Jamila Schmid is a very special and powerful woman from Morogoro. In addition to running a very successful and large farm, she is the mayor of a community next to Morogoro. She has often been of great help to us with her relationships, her commitment, and especially in dealing with authorities and offices. We are very happy that she has agreed to work voluntarily on the board of our NGO from 2020.
