We exist to transform communities, one life at a time, through church planting, education and healthcare.

Imagine a life where children spend more hours walking to school than they do learning.

A life where people die because they lack access to basic healthcare. This is the reality of people living in the most remote areas of Tanzania.

The people living in these isolated communities feel hopeless and abandoned.

But they are not abandoned. 

There is a God who loves them and shines the light of hope in the darkest circumstances. At Twelve21 Global, we believe that everyone should have access to education,
healthcare and above all, know that they are loved by God.

Our founder Yusuph Emmanuel, understands what it is like to feel hopeless. He was abandoned as a child and lived on the streets of Tanzania, where he was denied
education for many years. His brother died when he couldn’t access an oxygen tank – a simple intervention that would have saved his life.

These experiences are why Yusuph started Twelve21 Global, a ministry serving the spiritual, educational, and healthcare needs of the most remote areas in Tanzania. As a church planter for over 12 years, Yusuph has a desire to reach these communities with the hope of Jesus by meeting their most pressing tangible needs.


Our values are essential to our ministry and they influence our decisions and behaviors as we transform  communities –one life at a time– through church planting, education and healthcare.


We work with many denominations, churches, and leaders from different backgrounds. However, we expect every person who partners with us to adhere to some crucial points of doctrine.


We have testimonies flowing in and we love sharing them. It is incredible to see what happens when an ordinary believer listens to the heart of God and stops for the one right in front of them.
