    The Coming Change

    Would you choose the path of integrity even if it meant your children couldn't go to school?

    The Ruvuma River Basin shared by Tanzania and Mozambique is one of Africa's last pristine wildernesses, but Nassoro knows all is not well... the River's level has been dropping. Small Scale Mining, Wild Fires and Charcoal Production have all been leading to its demise and even a bigger change is foreseen from the recent gas discoveries.

    This true story follows Nassoro as he wins over the hearts and minds of those in his community in his unswerving commitment to provide for his family without destroying the environment.
