We are a Tanzanian non-governmental organization located in the village Lukwambe,
40 km from Morogoro in Tanzania.
Our philosophy is to work with the community, for the community. We focus on education,
health, alternative means of income and environmental sustainability. Please check our
projects in detail on this website.
Our office is in the small town Bwawani (direct at the
highway between Dar Es Salaam and Morogoro), but we
use to stay at our beautiful Ngerengere River Eco Camp in
Lukwambe village most of the time. At the Camp our team
arranges all our social projects which are carried out in
and with the communities in and around Lukwambe. Eco
Camp is also a place for networking and working together
with volunteers and guests from all over the world.
Ngerengere River Eco Camp started 2006 as an initiative of Mr. Remigius Mushenga in
association with local volunteers and organizations. In 2009 we became a registered,
Tanzanian organization (no.189625).
The funds for our projects are raised by donations and incomes from our ecotourism and
other activities. We do not get financial support from governments or international
organizations; so that we make sure that we keep our full independence. We orientate our
projects to the needs of the community but not to criteria from governments or
organizations without expertise in this region.
