Board composition

We are small, grass roots organisation run entirely by volunteers, so that virtually 100% of funds raised by the Trust goes to Katoke projects on the ground in Tanzania. Our volunteers are the energy and soul behind our organisation; they run our events, maintain our website, balance our books and guide the future of our organisation. Our volunteer committees are made up of doctors, teachers, professors, accountants, journalists, tradespeople, engineers, pilots and more, all working towards one goal.

The Katoke Trust in Australia consists of:

1. The executive management committee
2. Seven sub committees: building, medical and agricultural, education, sponsorship, fundraising and communications, youth, finance
3. A supporter base of more than 1,000 donors, sponsors and other stakeholders

Our organisational structure:

We are always on the lookout for skilled people to join us, both in Australia and Tanzania. To learn more, please visit our Volunteer page.

Engagement and partnership 

We plan and act in partnership with the local community in Tanzania, with government officials, community leaders, the Regional commissioner and the Tanzanian President himself to deliver focused aid.

Funding for the construction of the Katoke Lweru school and initiatives by the Trust has come partly through partnerships and relationships with organisations in Australia. We have received grants from AusAid and Anglican Archbishop of Sydney’s Overseas Relief and Aid Fund (ORAF), and direct donations from Australian schools and Universities such as Danebank Anglican School for Girls and the University of New South Wales.

Above all, we rely on the generosity of ordinary people in our community. The greatest part of our funding comes from private donations. See how you can Donate today!
