Ben and Katie Ray (Neema Crafts withCMS) in Tanzania
Ben and Katie are Church Missionary Society (CMS) Missionaries heading up Neema Crafts in Tanzania. In Tanzania people with disabilities are often considered to be a burden or even a curse. People think that nothing can be done for them. They are often left uneducated and told that the best chance they have is to beg on the streets. The Neema Crafts Centre was set up to change people’s perceptions of disability and to provide high quality training and employment to our disabled artisans, chefs and technicians.
