TANZANIA - World Renew has been walking with communities in Tanzania for over 25 years. Partnering with the local church there, the Africa Inland Church Tanzania, we seek to see God glorified, churches strengthened, and people moved out of poverty.
WORLDWIDE - World Renew finds great joy in our work when we discover resources in God’s creation that can feed hungry people and restore worn-out farmland. When we join our knowledge and experience with the knowledge and experience of farmers to test creative ideas, we often find abundance where there was hunger and joy where there was deprivation.
EAST AFRICA - We had waited in vain all week for a glimpse of Kibo, the summit of Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in all of Africa. Like the Psalmist, we were contemplating from where does our help come.
TANZANIA - Sabina Makongo is a farmer and practitioner of conservation agriculture in the village of Nyamohonda, Tanzania. She was recently named a “Champion Farmer” by her village in recognition of her success and inspiration to other farmers. But it wasn’t always so.

As we drove from Mwanza through Musoma, we passed the entrance of Serengeti National Park. I could not help but marvel at the wonderful creation of God. I was reminded that our world belongs to Him.
