Welcome to RotaryForNorthernTanzania.  The vision of these cross-national, multi-focused projects is to improve the lives and life-chances of children and adults in the Mt. Kilimanjaro region of northern Tanzania through improvements in clean water, sanitation, education, health, micro finance, and agriculture.  These projects, begun in 2008, have been implemented through collaboration of 20 California, USA Rotary Clubs, two Tanzania Rotary Clubs, Rotary District 5160, and Rotary International.  Approximately 65,000 residents are benefiting.  We invite you to explore this website which describes the projects.


Another good place to start is the dramatic, informative, inspiring 23-minute documentary film, "In Kilimanjaro's Shadow." This new film focuses especially on successes and challenges related to the clean water part of our work.  The film can be accessed at vimeo.com/wandermouse/in-kilimanjaros-shadow. Also, see the 10-minute video below, filmed near Mt. Kilimanjaro.  For a 14-minute video describing 10 lessons for creating and implementing successful Rotary humanitarian projects, go to the Lessons Learned link on this website.  


We hope you enjoy your journey with us.
