African Initiatives

We give people a voice so that they can fight for the rights they deserve but do not have. A right to education. A right to health. A right to stay on ancestral land. A right to financial stability and a right to have a say in the decisions that shape the future. Together with our partners in Tanzania, we strive to find solutions, empowering individuals and communities with the ability to lift themselves out of poverty and bring about change.

Founded 1997

  • Mission statement
