Pamoja Afrika

Organization Description: 

Hello and welcome to Pamoja Afrika- Tanzania. We are an organization that specializes in rural locations throughout the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania. Our objective is to educate and assist local communities on poverty alleviation through funding, local and international volunteering, economic development, as well as empowerment campaigns. We are committed to improving the quality of life by supporting extremely impoverished communities that are lacking basic resources. Pamoja meaning together means we work with the community in assessing what they need. We are currently working with the people to help plan what they want support with rather than us coming in and advising them on what they need.
