Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge

Project #1

Rhotia Valley is a project, completely embedded in the community of Rhotia in Tanzania. It's aim is to give support to the people of the Rhotia area, especially to the children. Rhotia Valley consists of Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge on one hill and Rhotia Valley Children's Home on the opposite hill: Two hills one goal.
