School Links and Visits


FUM has been arranging school group and individual visits to Tabora Region since 1984 and has developed considerable expertise at managing these.

Nearly three hundred staff and students have made the trip with some visiting very isolated communities. All have had a wonderful time and many describe the experience as life-changing.

Schools and villages in Tanzania welcome visitors from UK, for their interest in the place and the support they give. Over its fifty years of operation in the Tabora Region FUM has built up an excellent working relationship with our Tanzanian friends and should your visit be supported by us you will benefit from that goodwill.

FUM's School Visit Code of Conduct gives useful practical information and also sets out the conditions under which we can support a visit.

To discuss a possible visit please contact Rod Smith secretary@fum.org.uk
