Zanzibar Action Project

Founded 7 years ago to address poverty in Zanzibar, specifically in the area of Jambiani on the south east coast. Working in three main areas: healthcare, education and vocational training. This extremely poor community cannot take advantage of the growing economic opportunities in business and tourism on the island, due to lack of academic and vocational skills. By funding higher education and training local young people in practical skills, and by working with and through established local structures ZAP is succeeding in areas where larger charities fail.
Over 80% of charitable funds reach directly to the target, due to regular visits by Trustees, and by excellent local African management.

Founded 2004
