TANZANIA YOUTH CULTURAL EXCHANGE NETWORK
Focus: Community and Education.
TYCEN is an NGO devoted to improving local education, fostering environmental conservation efforts, and furthering sustainable development in communities throughout Tanzania.
We organize various work camps in Tanzania in which both local Tanzanian volunteers and international volunteers from around the world participate.
It is our belief that volunteering in work camps can help forge connections among youth from diverse backgrounds and create an atmosphere of cooperation and respect among people from different countries.
This Environment and Education project is organized jointly with the local primary and secondary schools, Jambiani Marine and Beach conservation (JAMABECO).
It is aimed at addressing environmental and educational challenges in the school and in the community at large. The project is expected to establish a link between academic activities and environmental conservation.
