For the Love of Africa Society

FTLOAFor the Love of Africa Society is a charity based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. We are a group of volunteer members who raise funds for specific projects requested by our African partners. We provide opportunities for reliable organizations in needy areas of Africa (currently Tanzania) to partner with us to provide a brighter future for their communities. Together we build infrastructure for education, health care and vulnerable children.

Society members have the opportunity to share in the work of the Society and its vision by assisting with fundraising, being advocates for its work, and taking active roles in decision making.

Through interaction with our partners we assist in the development phases of the projects, including sending teams of volunteers to Africa for hands-on construction and similar physical activities.

Team members pay their own expenses, including airfare, food and accommodation, ensuring that maximum of donated funds goes toward projects. This physical participation in the building and development phase enriches both Canadian and African communities through direct personal contact and mutual interaction.

The annual Water Garden tour is one of the fundraising events of the For The Love of Africa Society. Since its inception, the Water Garden Tour has welcomed thousands of visitors and raised over $100,000 for our African projects.
