With funds from Mosaic, BCC bought an acre-sized plot as an opportunity for young adults to learn farming job skills for continued sustainability. Stanley plants corn and other vegetables in the plot to learn a viable trade in agriculture—on which the Tanzanian economy heavily relies.

Mary Lou’s life was one of “firsts.” She was one of the first people with a disability to graduate from the local public high school.

The list went on.
