Associazione Ruvuma Onlus wants to give a small contribution to provide a better access to health and professional education to the population of Tanzania, in order to reduce the currently gap between the quality of life in Italy and the one of that country.

In fact, we believe that the accomplishment of the development cooperation is not only an obligation, but also a way to make our planet more liveable, a "shared home" to preserve for future generations.

We don't give away fish, we teach fishing.

I'm Rodrigo Rodriquez, president of Associazione Ruvuma Onlus, whose mission is to give a contribution to the improvement of the quality of life of the population of Tanzania.

In order to reach this objective, qualified professionals chose to offer their skills, knowledge, time and energy: clearly on a voluntary basis.

The website you are going to leaf through, or, to use the most modern definition, to browse, will tell you what we are doing and in which way, and if you wish, you might participate to our gratifying experience.

By the way: all contributions we receive are exclusively used for our projects.
