From Tanzania, A Tribute to Joseph Shigulu
Joseph Shigulu, the program coordinator for World Renew’s local partner in Tanzania, the Sengerema Informal Sector Association (SISA), was one of the most dedicated and friendly Tanzanians I have ever met.
On November 30, 2013, Joseph was robbed and killed while driving home from work on his motorcycle. His sudden death came as a shock to his family, to everyone in his community, and to all of us at World Renew, who saw him as a man who was loved by everyone. Joseph was doing so much to help his community, had a passion for serving God, and seemed to be at the peak of his effectiveness. This was probably the hardest news we have ever received in our Tanzania country program, and World Renew and all of our partners are still in shock about this tragic loss.
