Any income derived from its divisions is re-invested into the organisation or into others of integrity within the field.
The Joshua Foundation is firmly established within Africa as a transformational training community. It does not have a “fortress” mentality but is a “launching pad” empowering and releasing kingdom disciples into effective Christian life and ministry wherever they may be located. We fervently expect this impact and reach to expand both within Africa and beyond.

Any plans you may have of visiting The Joshua Foundation or participating in its ministries need to be carefully coordinated from our base in Tanzania. Best times are also depend on what you would like to do, as activities are mainly climate-dependent. Seasons are as follows:
- January-March: This is the hot season where temperatures vary from around 26°C (79°F) to 35°C (95°F) in the open fields. A great time for outdoor ministry, hard work and travel.
- Late March-May: The long rains are now falling in northern Tanzania. Ministry and work is especially located indoors.
- June-August: This is our cool time of year with temperatures ranging from 12°C (53°F) and colder, to 26°C maximum in the afternoons (77°F). A good time of year for visitors from cooler climes!
- September-December: Temperatures rise consistently from a balmy “spring” (September) to late December when short rains may fall. Also a great time of year to come and to travel through the parks.
Yes, Tanzania is a safe place to visit, provided that you are sensible as to where you go, how you conduct yourself and who you go with. Like any developing nation, necessary medical and travel precautions must be taken, but the people of Tanzania are genuinely friendly and hospitable by nature.
