TAFCOM (Tanzanian Organization Facilitating Community Development Projects) is a registered non-governmental organization (NGO) that has been working in Tanzania since 2005. Our principle goal is to initiate, facilitate and promote initiatives with a focus on poverty alleviation and human rights. Working in close partnership with our community, TAFCOM aims to foster opportunities for development with long term sustainability.

VISION We hope to develop a responsible community that works together to address issues affecting human rights. MISSION We are determined to foster sustainable opportunities for development by working with the local community.

BACKGROUND TAFCOM was founded in response to a decrease in the standard of living, health care, and education in Tanzania. TAFCOM founders realized that the marginalized people of Tanzania were suffering from a lack of education and community initiative. TAFCOM quickly became a grassroots organization, which aims to work with the community to empower them to find solutions and work towards alleviating problems facing their community. We provide the community with the tools - knowledge, funding, and support - to address these problems. Initially, we began by addressing the pressing issue of HIV/AIDS. There was a clear lack of education about HIV/AIDS in the Kilimanjaro region resulting in an increased spread of the disease and mistreatment of individuals and families affected by the disease. We worked with the local community to educate people on how the disease is spread, what precautions you should take, how to deal with the disease to live a productive life, and the role of the community in assisting families affected by HIV/AIDS. While working on this initiative, we realized that we can be of great use to the Tanzanian people by encouraging them to work together for a better life. Since 2005 we have tackled many issues through community development.

The money will support the basic needs like clothing, food, rent for the housing, medicin, school fees and clean water. These money will help families struggling paying for their kids School fees.

 Shortly: This is for investing in the kids future and we hope you will recognize the importance and need for this cause. Any contribution will be highly appreciated.

Thank you,

Emmanuelle, Joyce and Line
