Founded in 1933 in Tanzania, Religious Congregation of the Daughters of Mary-Taborn, (CDMT), is a Diocesan Congregation of the Archdiocese of Tabora, Tanzania. The Congregation was founded in Tanzania in 1933 by the missionaries of Africa. The Congregation carries out her apostolate in conformity with the teaching of the Catholic Church.
The Sisters are dedicated to the missionary works and conscious to the needs of the marginalized in the rural areas of Tanzania. Various ministries like health care, education, pastoral ministries, social work and development of women and children are being carried out by the sisters in eight dioceses in Tanzania.
Education and healthcare services are particularly directed to rural areas where we serve the poor nomadic people and orphans. Our community has clinics among those most in need in rural missions. One of these health centers is located in Endulen village in the Ngorongoro Conservation area. The mothers and the children of the Endulen village directly benefits from the MCP funds. The natives of this area are the Maasai people, who are an ancient nomadic tribe.Many times, women are forced to share the same bed with other mothers after delivering their babies because of the shortage of beds. The most urgent need is for medical equipment, especially for labor and delivery kits, for basic infection prevention and first-line child birth care. The shortage of these equipments cause many children to die at childbirth.
The Daughters of Mary, Tavora-Tanzania made their Mission Appeal at Santa Sophia Church, San Diego as part of the Missionary Cooperation Plan 2022.
