About Us

Gidabuday Sports Tourism Foundation (GSTF) was established by Wilhelm Francis Gidabuday and Eva Baltazar on September 2015 and received full registration under the provisions of Trustees’ Incorporation Act (CAP. 318 R.E. 2002) on April 25th 2018.

Gidabuday Sports Tourism Foundation was founded to assist development of athletics targeting underprivileged communities, promotion of tourism and Culture through sports (Athletics Tourism), promotion of athletics scholarships for qualified athletes with passing grades as well as production of sports and cultural events – national and international with the ultimate goal of establishment of High Performance Athletics Training Facility.

The trust is based in Arusha Tanzania as its headquarters, GSTF is a Non-Profit Organization; its main purpose is to Promote, Sensitize and Enforce education through athletics.   

Gidabuday Sports Tourism Foundation (GSTF) is affiliated to Athletics Tanzania (AT), AT is the governing body handling all affairs of running events including track and field and marathons, it was established in 1954 and started sending athletes to the Olympic Games since 1964 Tokyo Games.

Tanzania has only two Olympic Silver Medals won by Filbert Bayi and Suleiman Nyambui in 1980 Moscow Olympics, since then the country has competed and returned home empty handed. Unlike other countries Tanzania lucks high permanent training center – that’s what prompted the need to initiate a plan for High Performance Athletics Training Facility.
