BENEFITING: PHILANTHROPIC VENTURES FOUNDATION
EVENT: roadmonkey 2012
EVENT DATE: Jul 10, 2012
Hi to all my friends and family,
This donation benefits all the wonderful community services that our group will do in Zanzibar after the climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro. We will be building an organic poultry farm and repairing a school. I am so excited to get to have this opportunity to make a difference in their future and now YOU can be a part of this experience through your gift.
Thanks so much,

TZIVA, Tanzania Zanzibar International Volunteer Association, is a small volunteer organization providing technical, educational, and hands-on volunteer support to grassroots community projects on the island of Zanzibar, Tanzania.
In July, Roadmonkey will partner with the TZIVA to renovate the Bububu Primary School. Located just 10km outside of Stonetown, Bububu is an underserved community. The primary school suffers from persistent overcrowding and a lack of basic resources. Our efforts there will provide the students and teachers a healthier, more productive and attractive environment to learn.
More about the TZIVA can be found here.
Philanthropic Ventures Foundation (PVF) is the US-based recipient of your donations, making tax-deductions possible. PVF, via Generosity in Action, will be sending your collected funds to TZIVA in Zanzibar on June 25, 2012.
Our expeditions are carefully planned to provide you with not only a first-rate geographic adventure but also the chance to accomplish something powerfully good in the world.
Roadmonkey was created to challenge convention, venture off the path and break the needless rules that prevent you from having the most authentic travel experience possible. We’re not a traditional travel outfitter, nor are we a volunteer organization. Rather, we’re a unique - some might even say weird - hybrid of both.
Roadmonkey gives you the chance to safely go farther into the world than you probably have in the past, and deeper than you could on your own. We give you the tools, literally, to help people in need sustainably help themselves. All this happens in the company of a few other accomplished & like-minded individuals, your expedition colleagues, who often become friends for life.
We call it adventure philanthropy - a ridiculously clunky phrase for a relatively simple idea - because we believe in the art of the experience, and in the value of learning how other lives are lived as personally as possible, no matter how far away.
