LIFE: Questions and answers

Find frequently asked questions about the LIFE project.

  • How will I be kept up to date with LIFE?

    By supporting the LIFE project you've started a relationship. You'll receive updates from the villages and you'll get to know the people, the places - the sites and sounds. And, as your relationship grows, we hope you'll see this community transformed.

    Your money directly benefits Oxfam's work in Malambo village, and three other villages in the Ngorongoro district. You'll be transforming the lives of children, young men and women, mothers and fathers - the whole community.

    We don't offer trips to Malambo village itself due to the administrative costs involved.
