Our Mission


We partner with Tanzanian communities to empower people through locally-managed, sustainable development projects.



A Tanzania where everyone can prosper. 



FOT's overall goal is to improve life in underserved Tanzanian communities by supporting tangible and significant development projects in a manner that builds on and fosters a cooperative relationship between Tanzanians and Americans. 

FOT furthers this overall goal by:

  • Identifying and supporting worthy projects in Tanzania
  • Collecting and disseminating information on the life, culture and development of Tanzania
  • Bringing together people interested in supporting Tanzania

We are all volunteers in the organization and operate out of the Washington, DC area, but with members throughout the U.S. and abroad. As our DC members are in close proximity to the Tanzanian Embassy, we have a good relationship with the Tanzanian Ambassadors to the United States and their staff.
