Dear Stakeholders, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Happy New Year to you all!
On behalf of the Board, Management and Staff of BMF, it is my hope that the start of 2021 has been graceful to you and in great spirit, as we venture on the journey that is ahead of us this year.
Welcoming this year, the Foundation is still embarking on its journey to bring hope to the underserved and improve the health and well being of all Tanzanians and the rest of Africa.
As we remain steadfast in our endeavors to serve communities, the success of the Foundation largely depends on the continuing support of our development partners, fellow Non-State Actors, Private Sector, Well-wishers, Friends and of course the unwavering commitment and collaboration of the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania in both Mainland and Zanzibar.
This year will be special to BMF and we look anxiously forward to have you join us in commemorating the one year anniversary in July 2021, since the demise of our Founder – H.E. (Late) Benjamin William Mkapa, whereas we will celebrate his life and unique legacy left behind in this Nation, Global Society and Generations to come.
The Foundation remains committed to endure efforts towards strengthening health systems and services at the community and facility levels, as envisioned in our Third Strategic Business Plan (2019 – 2024), with the goal of saving lives and improving health but above all, building productive societies as this has always been unbounded and continuous.
As guided by the National and International development frameworks, we will actively sustain initiatives aimed at alleviating the Human Resource for Health bottlenecks, reaching the community at grassroots through the deployed Community Health Workers and resilient community-based systems, designing innovative solutions targeting the Adolescents and Youths, as well as saving lives of Mothers, Newborn and Children, particularly in most needy areas of the country.
Once again, we are delighted to continue working with all of you this year, and set out this journey ahead together.
