Empowering Women Through Education

After more than 15 years, we still remain a grassroots, hands-on, volunteer run and supported organization with a core focus of empowering women by providing free education in business, vocations, math, and English. 


We are small and that’s a good thing!

What makes Give a Heart to Africa different?

  • 100% of the money donated goes to programs and students

  • Real experience and impact – you work directly with Tanzanian women and can tangibly see people’s lives change while you’re here

  • Intimate experience – you work with a small team of school staff and other volunteers

  • Personal touch – you live with a small number of other volunteers, allowing you to get to know each other well.

  • Your contribution through teaching and living at GHTA helps fund the free education we provide to students. 

We believe so strongly in the power of education that the only paid staff we have is our Tanzanian school staff (all former students). 

GHTA is a unique school which helps women to reach their goals by educating them  and giving them a chance to learn something new everyday. Through knowledge we can be independent and unstoppable.
