Working Hands

How we work:

We collaborate

It is essential that the groups we work with are passionate, motivated and driven. So rather than imposing solutions, we work only with groups who approach us for help, and invite and welcome our collaboration. We therefore form partnerships with existing organisations that bring together researchers, volunteers, local activists and community groups. In this way, we can be sure that initiatives will continue after our involvement has ended.

We respond to local needs

Our local partners have ownership of their projects – they tell us their goals, objectives and needs so that we can work together with them to identify how we can help.

We find appropriate solutions

We make use of knowledge from around the region and the globe, to find low-tech, high-impact, sustainable solutions to lower the demand for declining natural resources and reduce environmental degradation.

We support financially sustainable enterprises

We recognise that people need to make a living, and projects need long-term financial security to be sustainable. That’s why we help communities to identify initiatives that protect the environment and generate an income.

We empower

We build the capacity of Zanzibari communities through education, training and knowledge sharing between groups. We strive to provide people with the information and tools they need to live and work in an environmentally sustainable way.
