About Pemba Support
Pemba Support was founded by Neilus and Pat O'Doherty who served in an educational capacity in Pemba, with VSO, during 2007/08. On their return home they organized 12 local volunteers to travel to Pemba in 2009 to help lay the foundations of a Community Centre in the main town Chake Chake.
The Charity ‘Pemba Support’ was registered in 2010 to extend its work to projects for the needy communities in Pemba. These projects are helping to move the poor of Pemba to a better life.
