Working with communities
in rural Tanzania since 1975

We empower the poorest communities in Tanzania on a village-level. We are all volunteers and pair local Tanzanian representatives with UK-based project officers to support rural development and transform lives through various projects.

We Believe In
  • Access to Water
  • An Education
  • Income Generation
For All

Our Primary Goals

Clean Water

Communities are often deprived of reliable water and sanitation facilities, which leads to increased health risks and decreased school attendance.

Girls’ Safety & Education

Access to education is often fraught with difficulties. Girls are forced into domestic roles, lack proper hygiene, and face risks of abuse.

Income Generation

Relatively small amounts of money, when invested strategically, can profoundly transform the lives of rural families.
