No matter whether they live in Europe, Africa, Asia or America: In about 9000 Kolping Families people have united to help one another and to make a difference for the benefit of all people.
The Kolping Society of Tanzania was established in 1989 after the then Diocesan Bishop of Bukoba, the Right Reverend Bishop Nestor Timanywa, gave his consent for its establishment. Under the persuasion and guidance of the Director of the Lay Apostolate in Bukoba Diocese, Very Rev. Msgr. David Kamugisha, twelve members in Bukoba Parish formed a Kolping Family which was formally inaugurated in June of that year.
Building the capacity of our members, to consistently deliver on projects and understand considered good practice. Enabling the sector to self-regulate.
