Become a Member

Join or renew your membership in Friends of Tanzania

FOT Membership is open to all - RPCVs, former members of Teach for East Africa, volunteers with secular and religious organizations, visitors, travelers - anyone who is interested in the people and country of Tanzania! And of course, we welcome Tanzanians, especially those living in the U.S. (If you don't live in the US, sending the dues to become a member may be difficult, but we will work with you to ensure you can be a member. Just Contact Us!) Membership runs for one year, and FOT will send you renewal reminders as the anniversary of your membership approaches.  Our membership dues are intended to cover all operating and administrative expenses, allowing the bulk of donations to directly support development projects in Tanzanian communities.

FOT utilizes a membership database and website platform made available and managed through the National Peace Corps Association.  This allows FOT to have a top-notch platform at a very reasonable cost and reduces the time spent by volunteers by handling many administrative functions automatically.  Because we use the NPCA platform,  if you are joining for the first time, you will be sent to a membership form that allows you to join NPCA if you wish to do so, but you do not need to do soIf you are renewing, you may be asked to log into the NPCA site first. The NPCA form will specify Friends of Tanzania as the NPCA affiliate with directions on joining/renewing your FOT membership. Click one of the buttons below to become a member or renew your membership.
