Founded in December 2004, the For the Love of Africa Society is a 100% volunteer driven society which focuses on two key areas – Education and Health in Tanzania. These issues are critical to the long term development and stability of both Tanzania and Africa in general and we feel it is in these areas that we can most effectively make a difference.
Based in Victoria, B.C. Canada, we welcome people from around the world to join us on our journey. It is our goal that together we can bring hope to one small corner of the African continent. The society has its roots in an original team of fourteen individuals who visited Dodoma, Tanzania in September 2004 to assist in the construction of the Kizota Student Centre.
Society members travel to Tanzania to work side by side with the African community members who are equal participants in each project. For those interested in traveling with us in an upcoming project, membership and participation with committee work is expected.
Society members have the opportunity to share in the work of the society and its vision by assisting with fundraising, being an advocate for its work, and taking an active role in decision making. Members also have the opportunity to volunteer to travel to Tanzania to work with the local communities to fulfill their dreams of a brighter future.
