Founded in 1997, the mission of The Rohde Foundation has been to enhance and augment medical resources that will become self-sustaining in the long-term. Focusing on providing public health infrastructure and Education/Scholarships, the foundation works with local leaders, community laborers and internationally-based donors to establish the necessary groundwork. Crews of volunteers spend time in local communities in order to distribute supplies, conduct research and educate locals. Once self-sufficiency goals have been reached, the foundation aims to reproduce this system throughout rural Africa; we have already begun working in Tanzania.
What can you do to champion our cause? By dedicating yourself to supporting non-profit work in rural Africa you can truly make a difference to the quality of life for individuals, families and children. Find out how you can donate to our projects fund, or how you can directly volunteer your time. Any and all contributions will bring us one step closer to our goal to end preventable disease through an independent and local work force.
