Tanzania, located in East Africa, is home to many natural world wonders such as Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti, and Lake Victoria. Tanzania was formed by the merging of it's mainland, formerly known as Tanganyika, and the island of Zanzibar. The Tanzanian economy is primarily based on agriculture, which accounts for more than half of the nation’s GDP.

Despite the natural beauties and the rich history, Tanzania is one of the world's poorest economies. Many suffer from extreme poverty and lack of education. Ritualistic practices and beliefs in witchcraft have resulted in horrific events such as female genital mutilation and the killing of albinos. While Primary education is  said to be “free” in Tanzania, there are associated costs that make primary and secondary education unattainable to many children.  ICO is current developing communities in Tanzania to help the situation.

The Ismaili Youth Soccer Camp (IYSC) began as a non-profit, grass roots camp in July 2002 by it's founder Amyn Bhulji who yearned to create and leave behind a soccer legacy since his days of playing semi-professional soccer in the 1970s in Tanzania. 

The House of Learning was founded in 2009 by Bunga and Marco Masala to provide free education to Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC). The House of Learning currently operates two schools, Valley View Secondary and the Quality Training Centre. Currently, the financial burden of running these much needed facilities is carried on the shoulders of Bunga and Marco.

The Timberline and Carihi International Co-op class just returned back from their work placement trip to Nepal. A group of 23 students and chaperones spent their spring break experiencing the culture and adventures the small country had to offer. The class worked with InnovativeCommunities.org Foundation on the Irrigation Initiative, and managed to raise enough money to fund 1.5 kilometers of the irrigation canal. This effort helped to aid thousands of farming families in the remote village of Lawachowk that could not have funded this project on their own.
