To work in partnership to provide clean water, improve education and healthcare, and share culture, faith and music with communities in Africa.
The Africa Exchange Project provides access to clean water, quality education and reliable healthcare in Pomerini, Tanzania. Our primary work is in building relationships which are sustained through our exchange with delegations traveling to Tanzania and friends from Tanzania visiting the United States. Sharing the story of our friends - their dreams and ambitions - joins our community with theirs. We raise money in the U.S. to provide clean water to families, expand educational opportunities for children, and improve healthcare access and quality in rural Tanzania.
We have installed 43 clean water wells in our 16-year history. We have provided more than $30,000 to improve the infrastructure and medical equipment and pharmaceuticals for the healthcare dispensary and help support the elderly population of the village. We built and staff a kindergarten of 100 children. We have a scholarship program enabling young girls to attend secondary school and we provide the school textbooks and instructional material. We recently completed a $ 130, 000 Science Center for the Secondary School in Pomerini, our sister village, located in the Iringa Region of Tanzania.
