    "When minds are one, what is far comes near"

Chole Island is in the Mafia Island Marine Park in southern Tanzania about 125km south of Dar-es-Salaam. In 1994, the Chole Project was started with the objective of bringing direct benefits and empowering the Chole community to manage change

“It is our hope to exist in peace and understanding with those visitors who reach Chole. And when you leave to return to your homes, we will take it as a sign of gratitude if you say that you have been welcomed here with warm hospitality - and indeed we will endeavour to welcome you in such a way.”

                                                        The late Mzee Suleimani Bacha, formerly Chairman of Chole Village Council
