Welcome to Friends of Tanzania/Marafiki wa Tanzania!

FOT's 30th Anniversary Celebration and recent Educational Scholar Series were huge successes.  Check out the 30th Anniversary page and Recent Events on our Events page


Friends of Tanzania provides a platform and network for people who love and wish to remain connected to Tanzania and with each other. FOT allows members to continue promoting Village Community Development efforts in appropriate, inclusive and effective ways.

While many of our members were Peace Corps Volunteers in Tanzania, our membership also includes others who have spent considerable time in the country, are from East Africa, or have other meaningful connections. We all share an affection for Tanzania, its people and its culture, and a desire to assist in promoting development in the country.

Karibuni! We hope you enjoy learning more about what FOT does and how you can support and participate in our work and activities.


FOT provides linkages between Tanzanians and Americans, as well as others who have worked in Tanzania. We encourage networking among our members and our partners, return trips to Tanzania, and outreach to the Tanzanian Embassy in Washington, DC.
