Welcome to Foot2Afrika volunteering and adventure organization. Here you will find a meaningful, valuable and affordable involvement with the local community in the Kilimanjaro region.
* In 2006 Foot2Afrika was formed by two local Tanzanian men, Emmason and Johnson. They have a good understanding of how and where your volunteering efforts will make a real impact in the lives of the local people. They have lived here, grown here, and seen first hand the struggles faced here.
* While being part of the community, their mission is to increase the participation of both locals and international volunteers to serve the Tanzanian community at grass root level. If you want to help but do not have the availability to volunteer you can do one of the adventure programs and from the costs of these programs 10% go to local community projects.
Before forming Foot2Afrika they both spent many years working for international volunteering agencies and quickly came to understand that sometimes efforts were misplaced and volunteers could be exploited by high profit-seeking volunteer agencies. They were frustrated that this altruistic activity - by people wanting to make a real difference - was being taken advantage of and volunteers were being charged high rates to help out local projects. This is the main reason for Foot2Afrika not charging volunteers for their project placement, only accommodation and food.
We link schools to local Tanzanian school looking partners from abroad and teachers exchange.
There is may projects available at your interests and ability.
