KIPOK AFRICA ORGANIZATION
kipok Africa is a Tanzanian non-profit organization based in Arusha, Northern Tanzania.Arusha is the safari capital of Tanzania and the gateway to world famous natural attractions such as the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater. The founder of Kipok, Amani, was born and raised in Arusha, Tanzania. After spending many coordinating volunteers for other organizations he decided to start Kipok Africa to continue develop and enhance his local community.
Volunteer programs offered by kapok are internship opportunities for high school, college students, medical and nursing students, gap year travelers as well as backpackers. All the programs are set in a way that both the giver & the receiver are equally benefitted. We have special Summer Programs, as well as Short/long Term Volunteering Programs for those who have enough time
OFFERING ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES
AMANI’S CHILDREN CENTER
Amani was born in the Olokii village of Arusha, of the Maasai who are known as “fierce warriors”. Why? Because of the hardships of their livelihood and their strength and endurance through all trials. They are nomads and rely on products from the farming of crops and animals. Unfortunately, in recent years, rains have not returned to this part of East Africa and the crops have had low yields. With the market for animals and crops on the low end, no money can be earned, and living is almost impossible. Within Tanzania, there is little to no government funding for education, and the only school near Amani’s village lies almost entirely out of reach. Not to mention, most students cannot afford school materials or uniforms. Additionally, the education does not provide English instruction to students, making the reality of attending high school or university difficult.
