We believe every African deserves an opportunity to reach their full potential.
To empower African changemakers with resources, coaching, and support services, then work in partnership with them to co-create projects and organizations that further our shared dreams for the world.
1. Selfless (Ubuntu)
We have intense trust in the ability of people to create and implement solutions to their own problems. This is why we approach our partnerships with respect, humility, and a collaborative spirit.
3. Effective Altruism
Our programs and services are high-quality, effective, and efficient. We allocate our resources (time, money, etc.) in such a way that enables us to do the most good in the world that we can.
The word “can’t” IS NOT in our vocabulary. We see difficult problems as welcome and solvable challenges. Just because something hasn’t been done before doesn’t mean it’s impossible. We are organized, deliberate, and relentless in the pursuit of our vision.
We always make our intentions clear and operate with complete transparency to hold ourselves accountable to both our supporters and the broader public.
Selfless Solutions counts on more than 30 volunteers and members from more than 10 different countries and backgrounds; from students to CEO’s. Meet some of our members:
Founder & President, Selfless Solutions USA
In May of 2017, Pat graduated from Dickinson College with a bachelor’s in biology and had plans to pursue a career in medicine. However, after living and working in Tanzania for 6 months, he realized his true passion lay in creating and implementing solutions to societal problems that cause suffering on a large scale.
Mark was born and raised in Arusha, Tanzania, and has a bachelor’s in Architecture. He has been devoted to helping children and families in Arusha for many years.
President, Selfless Solutions Europe
Fabien has always been interested in the different cultures and lifestyles of people around the world, and has traveled extensively to experience and learn more about them. During a volunteer trip to Tanzania in the summer of 2018, he met Pat, who was also working as a volunteer and staying in the same hostel, and has been working with him ever since.
