Bana Tandizo doesn’t only focus on education and children, but also on the health needs of the community. As the name implies, community volunteers do not get paid for their work. However, BTF does provide an allowance for expenses, and contributes the valuable time of the Programme Manager, Martha. The volunteers report back to BTF on issues and challenges including child marriage, polygamy, sanitation, drinking water, malaria, and cholera, to name a few. The volunteers are particularly interested in the inhibitors to education, e.g. when children are forced to stay at home and work.
