Hi everyone, :)
I am hosting a fruit festival in January in Tanzania. I have a non profit here called village to village, and work to assist the local community by alleviating the effects of poverty where possible. I also run an animal rescue center to assist the local animals too, be they domestic, wild of semi wild alike! My two friends and fruit lovers, James and Lydia from the UK had the idea of a fruit festival here, and by chance a mutual friend connected us, and Afruitcan roots was born!
You can check out the site for the event here......... www.Afruitcanroots.org............ the idea is that it will incorporate volunteering to support the work I do here. You can check out the work on the following sites: www.facebook.com/sharetanzania .......... www.facebook.com/kilimanjaroanimalrescue ............... www.v2vtanzania.org
A little about Afruitcanroots! :)
Afruitcan Roots is a one of a kind non-profit event during January 12th - 25th for people all over the world to come together and celebrate all life through the sharing of our ancestral and dietary origins whilst giving back to the local community. The event will take place at the table top of Africa, in the foot hills of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. It is being created in part with John from, Uchira Childrens' Fund and Kilimanjaro Animal Rescue to ensure that all of the funds from the event go direct to were they are needed in the local community.
Activities during the two week event, will include both voluntary activities for Uchira Childrens' Fund and Kilimanjaro Animal Rescue such as building Uchira's first public library, planting fruit trees in the village's exhibition permaculture garden, and teaching local children. There will also be plenty of relaxation and enjoyment including trips to areas of outstanding natural beauty, group fitness activities, and time to get to know each other.
There will be an abundance of fruit available 24 hours a day including staple fruits like banana and mango, but also including some less familiar tropical fruits. Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit a banana plantation where over 30 varieties of banana are grown, and to visit the Moshi fruit market where they may be astounded by exotic fruits they may have never seen or heard of before.
Much love all :) x
