Usawa is Swahili for Balance. Our foundation aims to bring more balance. We want to do that by helping the poorest people on earth. A trip to Africa is not necessary to know that there is still poverty and famine. People are dying every day from malnutrition or malaria. We bring change in southern Tanzania.
