You too can give the poor in Tanzania's "forgotten land" a helping hand by donating or by being a volunteer.

Operation Upendo was
established for the benefit of the
poor and not for our benefit.
Therefore, neither the Founder
nor any other member of the
Board of Directors is allowed to
receive compensation or loans
from Operation Upendo under
the provisions of the Bylaws of
Operation Upendo, Inc.



We recognize that there are non-government organizations in Tanzania, also known as NGOs, that know what the people of Tanzania need in order to improve their quality of life. However, in many cases these NGOs are unable to progress with their project plans due to lack of financial and/or project support. Operation Upendo intends to select and qualify existing NGOs to work with directly to accomplish its goals. In this way we are not "reinventing the wheel".
