Mama Simba is a skillful and talented language trainer of both Swahili and English and competent cross-cultural facilitator. She is not only a program director for Experience Tanzania and a community leader, but also a "dear mother" - loving, caring, charismatic, approachable, supportive and open to accommodate new ideas.

Her life philosophies have been fighting against personal and community poverty, supporting others, and educational development. For her, it is always a great privilege and honor to work with the local and global communities, to be trusted and to be given the opportunity to serve the world at large.
