Dave, Tricia and Titus Rollett are partnering with Emmanuel International (, helping churches serve the poor in Tanzania.

Rural communities in Tanzania face many challenges; among them are lack of clean water, limited sanitation, food scarcity, poor health and deforestation.

In voluntary roles as missionary development workers Dave and Tricia will be working with the communities to implement life changing, simple,  technologies.

In all of their work, Emmanuel International builds self-reliance and local capacity to ensure the work is sustainable and uses simple technologies that can be easily replicated.

Dave, Tricia and Titus are aiming to move to Tanzania in late February, and will be looking for a suitable vehicle shortly after arriving. They have committed to an initial two years.


Event details

Wheels 4 Wheels Challenge!

We did it! We carried the four heavy and uncomfortable tyres around 9 miles (we added an extra peak for fun!) of rugged Peak District terrain!

5 top blokes joined me for this challenge: Oz Power, Jono Cantwell, Jamie Kaye, Ben Rollett and James Radford.  We took on this challenge in order to raise funds for a vehicle that will be able to manage the varied terrain found in the Iringa region of Tanzania. In the wet season the dirt roads are impassable to all but the most rugged 4 x 4's.

In Tanzania the vast majority of vehicles are Toyota, so it is likely that we will be looking for a Land Cruiser.

Every pound you donate will be used towards a suitable second hand vehicle.

At the end of Dave and Tricia's time with Emmanuel International the vehicle will be sold on and any money given towards it that remains in credit will be reinvested in Emmanuel International's work in Tanzania.

Carrying tyres up mountains is another thing I've delegated to you, Dave. Just like winning at squash.
