RPS Presentation, September 14,  2022–  Barry Childs- Africa Bridge -Helping Vulnerable Children & Families in Tanzania.

Barry Childs left Tanzania, his childhood home, as a college-bound teenager, eager to prepare for a comfortable corporate career. After earning his Bachelor of Applied Science in Psychology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, Childs worked 17 years at Exxon and then, served as the Director of Learning at Abbott Laboratories for the remainder of his career. When he returned to Tanzania 35 years later, the African country was a vastly different place struggling with poverty and the results of the HIV/AIDs epidemic. Childs resigned his position at Abbott in 2000 and founded Africa Bridge to assist the Tanzanian children.
