Having lived and worked in Tanzania for three years, and returned to visit the CMM Sisters and the Diocese of Masasi every year for 15 years, I become more and more convinced that what is needed is expertise.

Success in Africa is not rare though that is the impression the media, with its emphasis on bad news, always gives.

Five weeks in Tanzania and Zambia visited 10 of the 12 houses, talked to Sisters but did not ask for projects requiring money!

Cutting the tape to open St. Mary’s Girls Hostel at the CMM Sisters Motherhouse in Masasi was the highlight of my visit to Tanzania this year.  This Hostel is for 20 girls from distant villages, who attend one of the secondary schools in Masasi.

Things in Africa move slowly.  There are obviously many reasons for this, but it is also good to realize that this has advantages on a continent full of problems, many beyond human influence, like the climate just to mention one.  No wonder some parts of Europe are so densely populated!

During my visit to Tanzania in October this African proverb came true again.   

As Europeans we want things done without delay, bringing our cultural background with us. 

In Africa things move at a different pace, for many reasons, which are often out of people’s control – like the weather, lack of education, poor infrastructure and great distances, etc.
