The Grail in Tanzania began in 1970 with the invitation of Rev. Monsignor Henricus Winkelmolen, as he believed in female leadership in the church. There were 8 members who joined during our formation, and today, our team continues to expand with more effective programs being established.
Our movement’s focus in the country is primarily on education, believing that to educate a woman is to educate the whole society. We involve ourselves in the following:
Providing Education and Training
We train children on different levels, from preschool to higher education. In Rau in Moshi Town, we provide education to young girls who lack a chance to continue their studies. Our team also gives short courses to women interested in learning a certain skill to earn their own income. We also built the St. Teresa of Avila to help girls learn better and prepare themselves in college.
Promoting Safe Environment
Our group sells trees from our tree and garden nursery and convinces people to plant to preserve the environment. We also attend government meetings and present ideas on overcoming the problem of drought and pollution in the country.
Bringing Light and Hope
Some of our members work in hospitals and meet with different kinds of people. It’s because we believe that patients need to be cared for, knowing that God loves them dearly.
Teaching the Word of God
We work with the goal of understanding and spreading the word of God. Through prayer, meditation, and eucharistic celebration, our team is able to attain the mission of the movement.
