Kilangala Mission was founded by a Dutch lady named Treintje Beimars who passed away in 2007. She wanted to teach Bible studies in remote areas. In 1967 she found the site in a Fipa country called Kilangala and found that many people die from malaria and during childbirth because of belief in witchcraft. She first started a Clinic and an orphanage home, then she brought evangelism, which she named a Swahili name NURU, meaning RIGHT.
The Kilangala Mission is located within Kipande Village (about 400 inhabitants). This village is part of the ward Kipande. A ‘ward’ is part of a municipality. Within Kipande there are Kundi, Kalundi, Kantawa, Nkomoro2 and Kipande itself.
All five villages have their own village chairperson. In every village there is one governmental primary school. In Kipande there is also a secondary school (Government). In Nkundi there is another secondary school (Government).
Kipande Ward inhabitants are making use of The Kilangala Mission facilities when needed and when possible. Another 15 villages from over the hills are doing the same. To enjoy more and other facilities people need to travel to Sumbawanga.
The Kilangala Mission has 200 acres of land and has 30 people employed.
Kilangala has an Executive Committee. Since 2021 Aron Siame is the chairperson. Jointly with Krispin Sanane (Secretary) and Grace Sinkonde (Finance) they are overall responsible for the day to day management. However, every organization within Kilangala Mission has its own key leader.
Each organization has also its own executive committee having in total three members. All key leaders have their own specific responsibilities and powers in order to do their work. Within their own responsibilities they are the decision makers, unless it covers Kilangala Mission as a whole. This is where Aron Siame is coming in. Financial decisions need always the input of the Central Executive Committee.
Every working day starts with a morning prayer. Mission members are coming together in the meeting hall. They read the Bible, sing and pray, but also inform each other about important issues regarding work.
Guests are introduced or wished good luck. Sessions can take between 15 minutes and half an hour. This part of the day is creating a strong communication level and is most important for creating ongoing community sense. All members are meeting almost daily. Communication lines are short. Important issues can be solved quickly. Executive Committee members meet when necessary, while key leaders try to meet every six to eight weeks. Jointly they are responsible for a smooth running organization.
