Environmental Project

Duluti Green Foundation

The Project

Duluti Green foundation was founded in 2006 by Gladness Pallangyo to promote environmental conservation. The foundation recognises the importance of protecting our planet and conserving its natural resources so that every living thing can have an improved quality of life.

As there is only a small amount of rainforest in Tanzania, due to the landscape and weather conditions, Duluti Green Foundation is trying to ensure that the current areas of rainforest are protected.

This project does not require any previous experience. The Duluti Green Foundation welcomes all volunteers and appreciates their ideas and support. But a belief in the importance of environmental conservation is necessary.


This project is located 16kms (10miles) from the hostel and can be reached by public transport.

Please note
This project requires a one-time donation of US$ 100 to cover the costs of purchasing trees. This donation is not included in the program fee, and is paid direct to the foundation.

“I really enjoyed my volunteering with Viva Tanzania very much and I was able to gain great experiences and get to know new people – even though my time there was short. I especially liked the nice and informal atmosphere in the hostel. I had the feeling to have a contact person for all questions and concerns and to all my wishes regarding the excursions was received. I felt comfortable with you from the first day, everyone is so friendly and helpful and the food in the hostel is really sooooo delicious – a big compliment to the mamas! With regard to my project, I received great support by you from the beginnig. First of all, the Town Tour was particularly helpful in order to get a first glimpse into the Dala Dalas (mini busses). Secondly, it was pretty great that I was accompanied to the project on my first day. Thank you for that. All in all, the 2 weeks were really a great experience for me – as I said, but unfortunately a bit short, but I was still able to gain intense insight into life in Tanzania and enjoy great moments – especially the safari was an unforgettable experience. I’m sure that you will see me again in the next few years – above all, I would like to climb Kilimanjaro at some point, which has not let me go since I saw it. Until then, I wish you and your entire team all the best! Keep up the good work – you guy are really great!”
