Tanzania, formerly part of German East Africa, is an area of Africa in which the Holy Spirit has been moving people towards Christianity, since the arrival of German priests. Rulenge-Ngara is over 50% Catholic and the Church there manages many of the land's schools, dispensaries and hospitals.
The diocese borders on Rwanda and parts of Lake Victoria. We brought a water mission as well as a medical.dental group in 2011.

This year we hope to construct one or two steel band cisterns,a small solar lighting system and a couple of chlorination systems as well as bringing a medical/dental team
