Welcome/Karibu sana

School kids playingAction in Africa was established in 1997 to form a long term link between the peoples of Ashtead in England and those in the area around the village of Nyaishozi in north western Tanzania. Support now comes more widely in the U.K. and now also extends to a second area in Tanzania, Mtandika in the south east of that country. 

Our Aims:

  • Education


    to provide support in every way possible; primarily by sponsoring students who would otherwise not be able to afford education.

  • Healthcare


    to help overcome the terrible endemic problems of AIDS and malaria but also to provide basic everyday health services.

  • Relief of Poverty

    Relief of Poverty

    to help to build economic development, to assist job and wealth creation.
