FOT's 30th Anniversary Celebration


Friends of Tanzania's

30th Anniversary Celebration



to help us make this event a success!


The details...

Planning is under way!

A committee of Friends of Tanzania Board members, chaired by Clay Batko, is meeting bi-weekly to plan events deserving of the 30th Anniversary of Friends of Tanzania. The goal of FOT's virtual events will be to celebrate our love and appreciation for Tanzania, 30 years of FOT, and 60 years of the U.S. Peace Corps!

FOT celebrations are being coordinated with those to be held by the National Peace Corps Association honoring the 60th Anniversary of the Peace Corps.

You won’t want to miss this celebration - AND you can be a part of the planning!
