Afroplan Foundation


Support African women and children

Frank Tarimo founded Project Afroplan in 2012 to help women and children ages 3-6. Afroplan is a
day care center where children from the poorest families from Usa River can come to learn basic
math, science, grammar, Swahili and English. In addition, it is a place where these children can
stay safe and supervised while their family or guardians earn an income.


Afroplan supports Usa River women
Supporting women economically is another goal of Mr. Frank Tarimo. Women are generally paid
much less than men. This project offers women some jobs to earn a higher income, which in turn
helps their families escape poverty. Although there are currently only 3-5 women working at
Afroplan, we all hope to grow this great project to empower a generation of women in Usa River.


Sponsorship Program
Afroplan's sponsorship program strives to find individuals to fund tuition for a private school
where they will receive a proper education. The more students sponsored, the more students are
able to attend Afroplan. In this way, we create a beneficial middle ground in the transition out of
poverty in Usa River.


To lift children out of poverty, hunger, lack of education and poor health care for their future.
To uncover and support behavioral patterns of poor children to ensure sustainable development.

Special Notice:

We ask that you dress appropriately for work on the project. This means covering your shoulders, knees and stomach opaquely. In Tanzania, it is rude and provocative to dress too skimpily. We at Africa Heart's Desire hope that by following these simple rules, you will treat the locals with the respect they deserve.
