Bonitho Benedicto


Bonitho was hired in 2021 as Kulea Villages prepared to open a Maisha Matters Center in Dar es Salaam. Bonitho brings years of experience as a social worker, particularly in field work and community outreach. He also has the distinction of having been in the position of one of our Kulea children - he was helped to attend school by World Vision. This experience helps him identify more closely with the children and families we support. We are excited to see what God will do through Bonitho at Kulea Villages.
