Who are we?
The Rafiki Village Project is a 501(c)3 Portland-based nonprofit with a commitment to helping the villages of Dumbeta Ward, Tanzania, through community-led projects.
Our mission is to improve health, increase literacy and promote economic prosperity in a rural community where families face extreme poverty, malnutrition, illiteracy, lack of access to clean water, and inadequate health care. Through a collaborative partnership with the local community, our work prioritizes basic needs such as access to education, health care, clean water and economic opportunities.
During the current Covid-19 pandemic we have funded the purchase of crucial supplies such as personal protective equipment, hand sanitizer and thermometers for the local clinic, as well as half a kilogram of soap for all 1200 households in the Ward.
More to do - Hand-washing stations!
As part of our Covid-19 response, the Rafiki Village Project has funded the installation of foot-powered (no hand-contact) hand-washing stations in critical places where people gather.
Our aim is to set up these stations at all of the Ward's five schools as soon as possible, in advance of their planned re-opening. This will help to mitigate the significant risks associated with overcrowded classrooms and limited sanitation facilities at the schools.
All funds raised by our Takeout to Give fundraiser will go directly towards setting up these stations which we see as a vital way to protect the teachers, students and families in the Ward.
We look forward to sharing a delicious meal with you! And if you don’t choose to partake, you can still donate at this critical time.
