Strengthening healthcare systems and creating purified drinking water to assist in disease prevention. Supporting community development efforts in order to help build self-sustaining and successful communities throughout Tanzania. Mo Dewji Foundation currently operates several programs and aims to involve itself in new and innovative projects to provide services and support for less fortunate members of the community.
