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".
