Ngerengere River Eco Camp
Focus: Conservation, Community, Education and Arts.
Ngerengere River project was founded in the Bwawani village near Morogoro Tanzania; although it has been created and maintained by the community itself it relies on its volunteer program as an essential source of willing hands, new ideas and resources. Our main goals are distributed in three inter-related areas:Environmental sustainability, Alternative sources of income and Education.
We are currently running a number of projects such as:
Eco camp where our volunteers stay, Beekeeping nearby Eco camp, Tree nurseries at Eco camp and at schools, Hand craft, Widows project, teaching at community schools, Eco charcoal production etc.
