CHOOSE A PLACE, CHOOSE A CAUSE
In Calgary Daraja Foundation works with the Children’s Cottage Society in developing a nutrition education program that will benefit parents and children residing at Brenda's house. Activities of this initiative include nutritional education and cooking classes that are facilitated with the help of local experts and volunteers. Classes emphasize learning the nutritional value of food and understanding how a parent can prepare healthy, nutritious meals for their family on a limited budget. The nutrition program at Brenda's House will be replicated by volunteers and students in Zanzibar as they are developing a nutrition program at ZL4LF and Mazizini Children's House.
Daraja Foundation has various initiatives in Zanzibar, ranging from the fields of education, agriculture, medicine, maternal health, youth activities clubs and also helps people chase their dreams by providing startup capital to aspiring entrepreneurs. All of our programs are centered around creating sustainable intiatives that communities will be able to reap the benefits of the programs over and over again. You'll have an opportunity to work on multiple projects and lounge in an island paradise.
VOLUNTEERS COME FROM EVERYWHERE

Daraja volunteers are on the ground working with communities, handing over supplies, equipment and donations. You will see firsthand the imapct that projects have on the people and the communities they are serving. through with guidance from our board of directors and advisory board.
We have a great volunteer network of creative, proactive and solution-driven individuals. Volunteers that work locally or travel abroad have an integral role in decisions around funding allocation and project management. Our volunteers work together by communicating their observations and experiences in order to determine what is needed and how the foundation can contribute to a cause. We value time, contributions and advice from our volunteers towards the growth of the Daraja Foundation.
FLEXIBLE & ADAPTIVE PROGRAMS
Our volunteers share the information and feedback they gather from various stakeholders in the communities we're serving. With guidance from management and the advisory team, we're able to work together to adapat and develop programs to suit the needs of the community.
WATCH YOUR EFFORTS LIVE ON
Information and training is passed from one volunteer to the incoming volunteer in order to maintain our activities. The incoming volunteer has the opportunity to help further build, grow and improve the project. Their expertise is passed on to the next volunteer and the cycle continues. This approach has allowed us to go forward and continue a solid movement with rationale and transparency.
