Empowering Women Through Education
After 10 years we 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.
Our budget is comprised exclusively of donations and volunteer fees
We believe so strongly in the power of education that the only paid staff we have is our Tanzanian school staff (all former students) and our locally based (Tanzania) General Manager.
This means that 100% of all donations to go directly to our programs, our students and the operation of the school.
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.
