/jahm•boh/ swahili for “hello”

Village Life Outreach Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Cincinnati, Ohio whose mission is to unite communities to promote Life, Health and Education. We work in partnership with three remote villages in the Rorya district of Tanzania, East Africa to design and implement projects to fight poverty and improve lives while bringing important lessons of love, humanity, and community to our own friends and neighbors.

Sustainable Impact

Sustainable impact is what sets Village Life apart as an organization. The only way our programs are successful long-term is if the local communities in Tanzania can sustain them. We work shoulder-to-shoulder with these communities to provide a “hand-up” rather than a “hand-out” by providing knowledge and resources necessary for self-sufficiency.

Get Involved

Whether you’re on the ground in Tanzania or contributing your time and support in the states, there’s no limit to what you can do to make an impact through Village Life.

There’s no one-size-fits-all way to get involved with Village Life. The work we do is felt halfway around the world and makes an impact on hundreds of students and volunteers from the Cincinnati area and beyond. Our success depends on a diverse set of talents and resources.

So, what’s the best way for you to help?

Join us for our Annual Night on the Serengeti

Each September, Village Life hosts a fundraising event like no other, transporting guests to the beautiful land of Tanzania through the sights, sounds, and tastes of African culture. From the menu to the entertainment to a silent auction with authentic African art, the event serves as an opportunity for Village Life to share stories and hope with our Cincinnati community.
