The Tandana Foundation

About The Tandana Foundation

The Tandana Foundation is a non-profit organization that offers cross-cultural volunteer opportunities, scholarships, and funding for small community projects in highland Ecuador and Mali's Dogon Country. Tandana coordinates service projects and volunteer vacations that offer visitors to Ecuador or Mali the unique opportunity to be guests rather than tourists, to form cross-cultural friendships, to experience a rich indigenous culture, and to make a difference in the lives of new friends. Our scholarship program allows rural Ecuadorian students to continue their secondary education as well as to participate in experiential education programs. Our community projects help villagers in Mali and Ecuador realize their dreams of improving their communities.
