Who We Are

John de Ronde — Director

JohnCurrently swinging between London and Tanzania, I came to Tanzania originally on a VSO volunteering expedition in September 2007.

Working in the education sector I got to know about Katy Allen’s charity Village Education Project, Kilimanjaro in Mshiri village, Marangu and decided to stay on to help out. Since then I have also taken on project and development work for ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams (Canada).

Since setting up ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams (UK) I have worked to establish contacts and a network in the UK in support of the children of the Lyamungo Sinde.

My work is mostly in information and communications technology (ICT) advice, but like any work it expands into other fields, including feasibility studies for ICT development in remote locations. My design work, both in ICT development and now at any level, from garden design to website design is dedicated to raising funds for the children in the village.

More to come…
More information will be added to this page as more people come on board ABCD: Art Building Children’s Dreams (UK).
