Laurel & Tony Werner 15 February 2015, Mt. Kilimanjaro with Thomson Treks
After climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2015, Laurel and Tony fell in love with the country and the people. Wanting to do something to help those living in extreme poverty, Laurel returned to volunteer in the Majengo village. Shortly after, The Kilimanjaro Technology Foundation, KiliTech, was formed. We are a USA 501(c)(3) and Tanzania based non-government organization (NGO). We combine our passion with technology and education to bring long lasting change to rural villages replacing poverty with jobs and despair with hope. The East Kahe Ward, one of our main areas of focus, was awarded “Ward Achievement of the Year,” by the Tanzanian government in May 2017!
VISSION AND MISSION
Our vision is to end poverty in Tanzanian communities by creating opportunity for everyone, everywhere, and we believe the way to achieve this is through education. We act as creator, supporter, advocate, and donor, and freely volunteer our services so that children in Tanzania have access to safe schools. Our focus is on bringing water, lighting and power, toilets and sanitation, and educational materials to as many schools as possible. Every child has a right to education and we truly believe that an educated child has the potential and opportunity to improve themselves, their family, the community, and will make the world a better place for future generations.
