Environmental Advocacy Africa
Art in Tanzania is introducing and implementing environmentally-friendly solutions for the Tanzanian communities. For example, we are implementing the use of dry toilets, composting, and household water reuse. We also focus on eco-construction and planting bamboo as an eco-friendly solution to using as construction material. In addition, we emphasize sustainable tourism operations.
Tanzanian communities are lacking the economic strength to implement environmentally friendly solutions in their households.
Presently less than 50% of the households have a toilet. Interns are developing sustainable and affordable solutions including installing dry toilets for households and schools. We make use of solar-based water purification.
Other green work includes developing compost, finding sustainable sources to facilitate cooking, developing tree and bamboo nurseries as well as increasing education in the neighborhood, and advocating for our causes. The wildlife safaris and other tourism operations are a local funding source for Art in Tanzania. Tourism also helps us with our efforts towards sustainability. We are developing an NGO business model to streamline revenue back into communities.
