Through education and youth empowerment, all participants of the projects gain control of their communities by acquiring the skills necessary to achieve economic prosperity.

In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take,
relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions
we waited too long to make.
I'm a girl who loves adventure and giving back to the community. I believe in the goodness of society as a whole, regardless of what the media portrays. We can make big changes when we combine efforts.
I went to Tanzania to find a purpose. I believe I found one. I just hope I can go all the way and do what I set out to do. I pray that we attract the right people to our project and that we build an amazing team that will do more than we ever imagined. That is my dream. Bigger. No more playing it safe, or playing it small. This is definitely the beginning of a new adventure. I'm all in.

Frank Mbise, Project Coordinator
Frank is the perfect example of what happens when you take a chance on a kid. At 10 years old he was on the streets in Moshi, trying to find a way to better his life. By getting involved with a street kids center, he was able to get an education and a place to stay. One of the volunteers saw something in Frank and sponsored him to go to university where he got a degree in Travel and Tourism. And he came back! He didn't go off to a more prosperous city. He came back to Moshi with an intent to help his community. Because someone took a chance on Frank, he started a school that will helped many children living in poverty.
I was lucky enough to meet Frank when I went to Tanzania on a volunteer trip. At the time, he was the "team leader" at the volunteer house which basically means babysitter to us volunteers who had no knowledge of the language, very little of the culture, and were used to things like hot water and consistent power. :) He was great and made sure we were taken care of. I've been in contact with Frank since I left and we have teamed up to get this school going. It has been quite the adventure. I'm very proud of Frank and all he has accomplished.
