WHERE WE ARE GOING

What the future holds for tGF

Following years of successful projects and significant learnings, we are focusing on a small numbers of projects in Tanzania and the UK, rooting back to our passion and areas we know we can have a significant impact. In particular we are pushing forward with the developments of Mama Sylvia’s School which requires major investment in order to meet its full potential.

We have clearly defined criteria for the projects we are working on, some like Mama Sylvia’s School continuing long into the future.

There are two places the Goodall’s feel truly at home, Brighton and Hampshire in the UK, and Tanzania. So, it will come as no surprise that this is where you will find The Goodall Foundation working today.

Covid-19 changed the world, and during that time tGF continued to make considerable contributions, but in the wake of the pandemic, we’re approaching projects that we know and love.

When you work with a new community, there are always new challenges; be that negotiating with governmental bodies, understanding cultural differences, facing new and unique situations… the list is endless. Each time a new lesson is learned, it can be costly, both financially and in time.

Having supported projects globally since 2016, we’ve been able to learn, grow and adapt.

We are now known and supported in the areas of Tanzania we have worked so closely with for all these years. We continue to understand the challenges the communities are faced with, and how we can help. We have the support of Maasai elders, Chiefs, educational officers and government representatives. We have built a network of trusted colleagues who help us to deliver on promises, navigating the complex landscape; both culturally and ecologically in rural Tanzania. This is something that has taken years to build, and whilst we still continue to learn and overcome hurdles every day, the experience of having worked in Tanzania puts us in an ideal situation to focus our efforts here.

The UK faces entirely different challenges. Poverty and educational limitations exist here too. We will continue to support projects at home, as well as abroad.

Even through Covid-19 that changed the world, tGF continued to make considerable contributions, including the provision of hand sanitiser for 22,000 children in the schools we work in Africa.

Each time a new lesson is learned, it can be costly, both financially and in time, we always  take these on board for our next project.
