what is harambe?

Harambe in Swahili means ‘coming together.’ Harambe is also a community-based fundraising method in Tanzania. At a traditional Harambe, people gather to support a common cause. One-by-one participants announce their donations, contribute joyfully, and the group celebrates!


On May 1st at 3 pm central time, Wesley College invites you to travel (virtually) with us to Tanzania. Our Harambe will bring higher education to students with big dreams but few opportunities.  There are four parts to our Harambe:  we hope you will join us to learn, pray, give and celebrate.

If you are a church looking for resources to share Harambe and Wesley College with your congregation you can find them here.


Harambe gives you the opportunity to see inside Wesley College, meeting staff and students, hearing their stories, and getting to experience part of the Wesley College experience. You can learn more about Harambe with the video below.

You will be joined by the Wesley College choir and students leading prayer where you can join in praying for Wesley College and the formation of the next generation of servant leaders.


You can join us in prayer on a regular basis by 'liking' us on Facebook, to stay in touch or joining our mailing list below.


Many people joining together can have a big impact. Wesley College needs your gift to support more students. By donating to Harambe, you will not only transform individual student lives, but you will change communities. Your gift will send more students like Neema out into the world. What does Neema want to do post-graduation? 


"First and foremost, I want to help the community learn to reconcile with each other and make peace."

Please join us in the spirit of Harambe, and make your gift here.



HARAMBE will culminate with a live, celebratory online event on  Sunday, May 1st. At 3pm Central Time, we invite participants to log in from around the United States. Participants will meet staff and students in Tanzania, enjoy the Wesley College choir, and celebrate progress towards our fundraising goal.
