Addressing communities’ pressing needs
by empowering current leaders and readying leaders of tomorrow
Young Leaders Program
The Young Leaders Program prepares youth to become leaders of positive change in their communities. MCW identifies youth with high potential to lead in their communities. They come together to participate in a program where they will develop a deeper understanding of social issues and change, acquire the skills, networks and confidence needed to affect change and to return to their communities as mobilized leaders in a globalized world.
The Community Development initiative develops and supports community centers as spaces for skills development, entrepreneurship and social services for youth living in underserved communities. MCW currently has 4 centers: Rwanda, Tanzania (2), and Zambia.
Oral Health Care
Our Oral Health Care program aims to achieve improved oral health status for all Tanzanians. Using an inter-disciplinary approach, we strive to build the capacity of health professionals to tackle the oral health workforce shortage. We work with Dentists, Nurses and mid-level professionals (Dental Therapists).
