Forever Projects | Mark Dombkins helps women break the cycle of poverty and create self-sustaining futures

Mark Dombkins is a Maths teacher by trade, a husband, a father of six, a Coach at Seth Godin’s altMBA, and the founder of Forever Projects – a charity that helps women in Tanzania break the cycle of poverty and create self-sustaining futures.

Forever Projects is quite unique in that 100% of donations go directly to the work on the ground finding local partners which has now expanded from 1 site to 6 sights across Tanzania and now even further into east Africa.

The project starts with the most basic need – nourishing a newborn – and then helps women thrive in a business that provides ongoing income. This effectively keeps babies with their biological families and out of orphanages – as well as providing a sustainable future.

Since 2015 Forever Projects has facilitated over $1.5 million dollars in donations to the local projects in Tanzania helping more than 1800 babies stay with their families and enabling over 6000 people to find freedom from poverty.

“Tragically, this is a country where babies are abandoned in heartbreak and desperation.  They’re not unwanted, just unable to be kept.”

— Mark Dombkins, Forever Projects
