Community Projects Africa

Community Projects Africa is a registered UK charity set up in 2003 to provide support for impoverished people living in south and east Africa, predominantly Tanzania. Working with village elders and councils, we support community projects that provide schooling, vocational training, sanitation and safe water supplies. Integral to our mission and projects is the education of such communities on HIV Aids and assistance for families affected, as well as the promotion of environmentally friendly activities and conservation. We raise funds through donations and fund-raising events and pride ourselves on not wasting money on unnecessary administration - your donations go directly towards the project you want to support. CPA is currently running four active projects, all of which need your help to remain operational. At our vocational training centre, we have built the classrooms and health post and now desperately need funds to employ local teachers and start running our skills courses, including English language and tailoring, for vulnerable Maasai women. * Laishene Primary School, Tanzania * Choba Primary School and Nursery, Tanzania * Arkwasyie Medical Project, Ethiopia * Cypress Hill Vocational Training Centre, Monduli, Tanzania

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

In September we are going to attempt to make it up (and hopefully down) Kilimanjaro, Africa's Highest Mountain. Our group will be made up of five - Olly, Jayne, Chris, Nick and Simon - and apparently one in five don't reach the summit so we will be hoping to beat the odds!

The charity we have chosen to support is Community Projects Africa.

Community Projects Africa is a registered United Kingdom charity set up in 2003 to provide support to impoverished people living in east and south Africa.

The projects supported are those involving schooling, vocational training, sanitation, provision of safe water supplies, education about Aids/HIV, assistance for families affected by Aids/HIV, and community projects. The charity works with the elders and community councils to ensure that all projects are backed and supported by the local people.

The majority of admin costs are covered by the Trustees of the charity. This is one of the advantages of giving to a small charity!

Its founder set Community Projects Africa up after climbing Kilimanjaro herself and wanted to give something back to Tanzania. You can find out more about CPA here:
