Relationships

Relationships are at the Heart of all we Do!

Over ten years of face-to-face communication has built long lasting relationships of friendship and trust. Exchange is a critical reason why we are able to be successful. By visiting and sponsoring visitors from rural Tanzania to come to the US, we are better able to understand their needs and help them achieve their dreams.

Our Success Stories:

  • Sponsored a 14 member choir to tour New England to raise awareness and funds
  • Self-funded groups of 8 to 13 people traveled to Tanzania in 2007, 2015 and 2018
  • Sponsoring separate individuals from Tanzania with visits to the US five times since 2008
  • Africa Exchange members visit the village multiple times every year.
