Mission Statement

To inspire everyone to volunteer by building a vibrant and supportive community which strongly assisting in the provision of education and healthcare services

Description

GTL started its activities in Kilimanjaro, initially we had one office located just adjacent to Ushirika University.
At present we operate across different regions in Tanzania. We have big hostels in Kilimanjaro and Arusha. We have offices in Kilimajaro and Arusha (HQ) as well.

We have a number of volunteer programs such as construction projects, environment projects, youth projects which are completely run and administered by our organisation, these projects are funded by our organisation through the support of our donors.

On other hand, we are working with government institutions such as schools, hospitals, agriculture dept in programs such as healthcare programs, teaching programs, agriculture programs however we also work with few private sectors this approach allow us to bring impact to the very needy group.

Each GTL volunteer program is designated to produce meaningful experience to our participants and at the same time cause a huge impact to the local community. While the volunteer program is underway we make assessment to ascertain if organisation goals and participant expectations are met
