Our Mission

The Buturi project is a small charity with a big vision committed to supporting the impoverished and underdeveloped Tanzanian Buturi community through a variety of self-sustaining programmes. The project stemmed from providing a sanitary water source in 2008 and has now expanded to penetrate grass-roots education, attempting to break the poverty cycle that stifles African communities. If successful and sustainable, the Buturi project will become a model that can be emulated wider onto the African socio-economic landscape. With this we truly believe we have the power to change lives.
