For the Love of Africa Society focuses on education and health. We are a hands-on 100% volunteer-run charity working in partnership with organizations in Tanzania. Over our 14 year history we have funded and helped build pre-schools, a health clinic, an orphan’s centre and a technical institute. Locally we fundraise for the projects and then members of our society travel to Tanzania to work on the projects. All funds received go directly to the projects. Each year that we return we visit our past projects and celebrate with them their successes.
We are a non-profit society with charity status. We are a fun and hard-working group of people who are always welcoming new members. New members who would like to travel to Africa to take part in the work there are also expected to be a part of the fundraising events in Victoria.
Our organization welcomes new members. We meet monthly from September to June on the Wednesday evening of the month at the 55+ Seniors Centre in Cordova Bay.
