Meet Me In Africa is a philanthropic arm of public relations agency VOCAB Communications, based in Toronto, Canada. In 2012, Founder Chrissy Newton was on a charitable media trip with MTV Canada and Life Momentum looking to support a local Tanzanian youth based program. Through her travels, Chrissy was introduced to an orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania.
During her time with these incredibly inspiring children and their caretaker Mama Jane, Chrissy felt an immediate connection. Chrissy travelled back on her own in 2013 for aid work and to develop her relationship with the teachers and children, and Meet Me in Africa was born.
Once a year, Chrissy and a team of volunteers will visit the orphanage and work directly on one project in construction, education or agriculture.
