Viva Tanzania

Viva Tanzania is a German-Tanzanian organization established in order to support meaningful and needy projects in Arusha, North Tanzania.

About the Project

Viva Tanzania was established in the end of 2015 by Martin, Tanzanian and his wife Tizia, German. We are both passionate about intercultural encounters, tourism and nature. Tizia is a Cultural Anthropologist and Martin is a professional Tour Guide.
We want to assist people from all over the world and Tanzanians to learn from one another through intercultural exchange. By helping foreigners to find meaningful projects that need support we do not only want to enable them to gain experience in working and being with people from different origins but also broaden the horizonts of everyone. Our mission is to establish an environment in which intercultural encounter can take place. Our participants will be enabled to gain first hand experience in a totally different sourrounding from what they are knowing. We want to show them the diversity of people, cultures and lifestyles. On the other hand we want to support needy projects in Arusha, our hometown.
Our vision is to change the people's perception of Africa, Tanzania and its inhabitants through
challenging and reducing stereotypes and racism. We believe that this can only be done through intercultural exchange like volunteering.

Social Impact
