We are Paschal and Melania Mazuka, the founders and directors of Maternal Life Tanzania. We have researched the profound need for marriage and family life formation in our region, as well as the need for improved training in emergency obstetrical care. 

Prior to our work in Tanzania, we have been involved with pastoral care, in early childhood education and in Radio Maria Tanzania. We have been inspired by the Faithful House Program and are eager to spread this work. 

When we are not working with MLI, you may hear us on the radio in Dar-es-Salaam.
