About Care for Africa


Care for Africa is a collective of like-minded volunteers including doctors, nurses, paramedics, builders, teachers, students and those passionate about development.

We are passionate about our work and committed to ensuring that all of the funds raised, our time and donations are put towards the communities in which we work.

We work with isolated communities in Tarime, in the Northern District of Tanzania, to deliver much needed health, education and water programs. We do this by utilising our skills to build capacity and deliver positive outcomes to children, young people, women and men.

Our mission encourages philanthropic endeavour in our local community. Care for Africa began by encouraging the people of Launceston and Tasmania to be involved in positively impacting on the lives of those living in a developing country. We take pride in encouraging young people, Tasmanian’s and Australians to be a part of Care for Africa’s success.

If you would like to be a part of Care for Africa we would love to hear from you.

Tanzania continues to be one of the poorest counties in the world.

The Tarime District still functions with minimal foreign aid. The outlying rural communities Care for Africa works in are incredibly poor, many with little to no access to health care, only 30% teachers formally educated, and no access to safe clean water.

The community people exists as subsistence farmers with limited secondary industry or income.
