Join our Move-a-thon
#milestopomerini is our virtual Move-a-thon. You can join as an individual or create a team.
We are hoping you will shake off this winter and #moveforgood to raise $7,500 ($1 for every 1 mile to Pomerini) for our projects. It doesn’t matter how you move — walk, run, bike, swim or even crawl — we ask that you pledge a minimum of $1 for every mile you “move”, so together we can virtually reach the heart (and hearts) of Pomerini between April 12th and May 31st.
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 most ambitious project yet, building a new science center, has hit an exciting milestone. The walls have been erected, rafters installed and the roof is being completed!
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.
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 support local hygiene educate efforts.
Helping provide access to clean water was the first way in which we helped the community. Easy access to clean water reduces illness & infant morality but also helps free up time so young girls may attend school.
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 that should want.
In addition to travel with groups to Tanzania, we also bring villagers to the US.
