Friends of Usambara

I booked my hike of today and those of the upcoming days through Friends of Usambara. See .
This organisation supports the local community and local development projects. All guides and staff are from Lushoto. It's setup together with the Dutch development organisation SNV ( ). Another German organisation is helping as well. So hiking here supports the local community. Schools, disabled people, improving agricultural yields, sustainability, avoiding erosion. All good stuff.
More fun: the last 2 weeks half the people in the Friends of Usambara guestbook - on different dates - came from Utrecht in The Netherlands, where I live.
