Youth’s trip to Tanzania turns into calling
"I saw a huge need for a center for girls and a need for more centers and aid in general."
- Chris Gates, humanitarian
Kitongo, Tanzania - It all started with a Tulsa woman's promise seven years ago to take one of her grandsons on a safari to Tanzania.
The trips had such an impact that Gates started the Janada L. Batchelor Foundation for Children in 2005, the year he graduated from Holland Hall, to help young girls receive education, nutrition, nurturing and hope for a better life.
