Care for Africa is a collective of like-minded volunteers including doctors, nurses, paramedics, builders, teachers, students and those passionate about development.
They are passionate about their work and committed to ensuring that all of the funds raised, their time and donations are put towards the communities in which they work.
They work with isolated communities in Tarime, in the Northern District of Tanzania, to deliver much needed health, education and water programs. They do this by utilising their skills to build capacity and deliver positive
outcomes to children, young people, women and men.
Their mission encourages philanthropic endeavour in the local community. Care for Africa began by encouraging the people of Launceston and Tasmania to be involved in positively impacting on the lives of those living
in a developing country. They take pride in encouraging young people, Tasmanian’s and Australians to be a part of Care for Africa’s success.
Tanzania continues to be one of the poorest counties in the world. The Tarime District still functions with minimal foreign aid. The outlying rural communities Care for Africa works in are
incredibly poor, many with little to no access to health care, only 30% teachers formally educated, and no access to safe clean water.
The community people exists as subsistence farmers with limited secondary industry or income.
If you would like to be a part of Care for Africa we would love to hear from you.
Care for Africa Foundation became a registered RAWCS project in 2009, with The South Launceston Rotary Club as it's sponsor club.
