Extended Partnership

MamboSteunpunt is functioning as a link between individual initiatives from "donors" from the rich part of the world and the inhabitants of the Usambara Mountains. The precondition for our support for these initiatives is that they should not so much be based on the principle of giving aid but rather on the intention of cooperation in equality.  MamboSteunPunt will assist with framing project plans, drafting proposals and the implementation and continuity of the projects. In the implementation phase, western partners can combine their work with a comfortable stay in the Lodge. The expenses for overhead are reduced to a minimum and partners have direct insight on the way the money is spent, and the finalMambo_Markt outcome. Very many relatively minor things can imply a tremendous improvement for inhabitants of the Usambara Mountains. Small scale initiatives from individual people can effectively be guided and supported this way. And additionally, a holiday in the Usambara Mountains is a guaranty for an unforgettable natural and cultural experience.
