FD Kilimanjaro

Welcome to Lower Moshi with FT Kilimanjaro

FT Kilimanjaro (FTK) is a non-governmental organization registered in Tanzania and is a joint initiative of the Dutch FEMI Foundation and TPC Company Ltd. We envision flourishing communities in Lower Moshi void of poverty and despair: Communities where all, men and women, young and old, have access to basic health care, education and opportunities to be productive and earn a livelihood for themselves and their families, and to do so in a self-sustaining and environmentally sustainable manner.

Guided by the concept of an integrated approach to development, with interventions applied simultaneously and across multiple sectors, our work is built around long term goals for four sectors (Education, Health, Income, Infrastructure) that are interconnected. Underpinning the integrated approach is a strong commitment to empowering the local community to take full ownership of the project, to be part of the planning process, drive decision-making and share responsibility for implementation and success.
FT Kilimanjaro is committed to – and dependent on – developing partnerships with other stakeholders, including other NGOs, government authorities, the private sector and communities.
