What We Do

The Africa Exchange Project provides access to clean water, quality education and reliable healthcare in Pomerini, Tanzania. Our primary work is building relationships. All projects are chosen and carried out by the people whose lives we are helping to improve. We have over a ten year history of successful projects. Your donations of funds, talents and/or time, dramatically change lives.

Our Current Initatives

Science Center News

Work has been completed on the new science center. Four working laboratories covering Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Agriculture are now being actively used by students to pursue their dreams. Originally the project was planned to add only 3 labs and take 5 years. With your help, we were able to add another additional lab and complete the project a year earlier. We are now looking to build new classrooms to support this new lab facility.

Healthcare

Without access to adequate healthcare, the community suffers from easily preventable illnesses. We support the local healthcare clinic by upgrading the facilities, purchasing medical equipment and drugs, and supporting local hygiene education efforts.

Education

Education is the foundation of making long lasting change. Learn about how we support local schools from kindergarten through secondary school. Training, building facilities, buying books and providing scholarships for girls are ways that help raise up the community.

Cultural Exchange

People and long-term relationships are at the heart of what we do. Our work is based on a relationship of mutual respect that has been built over a 20 year span. Our projects are based upon the needs of the community and not what we think we should want. In addition to traveling with groups to Tanzania, we also bring villagers to the US.
