More about Rozalia Foundation

About Us

Rozalia Foundation is a Non-governmental and Non-profit organization based in Arusha Tanzania, registered under The Non-governmental Organization Act, 2002 with registration number 01NGO/R/4328. It is a charity dedicated in making positive impact by changing lives of local people living around the Serengeti eastern ecosystem in Northern Tanzania. In fact, the livelihoods of Pastoral Maasai communities who live adjacent to these ecological areas are historically inter-connected to nature. We live in the world where people and wildlife call home. Where these lives co-exist, competition of resources and conflicts among them becomes inevitable. Our Mission is to establish a win-win atmosphere benefiting both nature and local communities by achieving long-term impact of turning ecologically and economically vulnerable areas into future viable conservation economies.



Envisages a society where all individuals are entitled to equal access and management of resources and where everyone participates in nature conservation.


To empower and Mobilize Indigenous  communities to realize better access and sustainable management of their own resources in equal participation while leaving mother nature untouched.
