FOT was established in 1991 as a means for Tanzanians and non-Tanzanians to work together, learn from each other, learn more about Tanzania and to support worthy projects in Tanzania -- giving back to a country many of us have come to love. Many of us are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers; others are former Teachers for East Africa or volunteers with various other secular or religious organizations. We have always welcomed Tanzanians, several of whom serve on our Board and Committees and who are vital for our success.
100% of all donations we receive goes to support development projects in Tanzania. Each year FOT sends about $30,000 to support such projects and an additional $15,000 is given for specific projects in our Member Designated Program.
