In 2016, a group of friends realized they had the same illusion: join forces to make a dream come true. The main goal was to provide more opportunities for the kids in the area.
From 2018 we have grown because of all the volunteers that day by day get involved in both field and offline work.
The word AfricaNdoto comes from Swahili language, the main language spoken in Tanzania. Where Ndoto means “dream”; with what the name of the NGO actually expresses: “The African dream”.
The name came from a brainstorming where what we most captured were the values that were originated when creating this project.
We all create AfricaNdoto. Since the moment you become interested in our projects or activities, you become a member of the AfricaNdoto tribe, and we all hope that you will stay for a long time.
We divided ourselves, forming a work team in Spain and another in Tanzania, and our volunteers can be involved in both destinations.
Let me introduce you with the team so you can get to know us better:
