Matthew and Samantha Archer

NSW & ACT missionaries

Anglican Diocese of Mara


Despite the valuing of education, young men in Tanzania are often unable to attend high school. Matthew and Samantha have recognised that there is a skills shortage and are committed to helping change this situation through their work with the Boy’s Brigade Mara Training Centre (BBMTC), where Matthew is principal. Along with teaching carpentry, BBMTC, now in its fifth year, provides young men with a solid biblical foundation that enables them to return to their village churches as committed members. Samantha supports Matthew and homeschools their younger children, while Verity and Ezekiel board at school in Kenya.
