Help to Help’s acclaimed crowdfunding concept was launched in early 2014 as part of our ambition to make it easier to contribute, as well as making it a more intimate and personalized experience.

We are a team of passionate people who believe in the power of education and how it can change the world. We have people based in Stockholm, Sweden and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
