ETI partners with developing communities in Tanzania to promote and sustain social and economic prosperity through education.
Our first project was to build Karagwe University College which opened October, 2018.
The first cohort graduated in November, 2020. ETI is expanding on its successes
by building Rural Opportunity Centers for KARUCO grads and area farmers
to start or grow businesses and access viable markets
Meet KARUCO Students!
Educate Tanzania and partners have built KARUCO - Karagwe University College. The college opened Fall, 2018 and provides students with new methods in agriculture that empowers them to earn and sustain stable incomes. ETI is expanding upon the successes of KARUCO by building Rural Opportunity Centers (ROCs) in area communities. Be part of this amazing story!
Our Current Work: JUICE for THE FUTURE!
Currently, Karagwe’s farmers grow some of the most delicious pineapple in the world but earn less than $1.25 per day. They toil with hand-hoes, walk or bike their harvest to local markets, and as local markets burst with the same crop, yields often rot or farmers sell to 'middle-persons' for a very low price. ETI and partners are changing this.
Surveys showed that the people of Karagwe want help getting food processing to bring economic vitality to their region (University of Minnesota, 2016). ETI and partners, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania, Karagwe Diocese (KAD) and BE Design (NY), have the plans, the site, the approvals, and the framework for a sound operation. Now, we seek funds to construct the plant. We can do this: Let's get this built!
Local ideas: Global support.
