Ngerengere River Eco Camp

Non-governmental Organization

ABOUT NGERENGERE RIVER ECO CAMP

OUR WORK AND LOCATION

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.

OUR HISTORY

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).

OUR INDEPENDENCE

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.

REMIGIUS MUSHENGA - FOUNDER AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

It is not possible to explain about Ngerengere River Eco Camp, without mentioning its

founder and director, Mr. Remigius Mushenga (many people call him Remmy). Raised in

very poor conditions in rural Nothern Tanzania, he also faced similar obstacles that come

with economic hardship.  


In his life he has been involved in many social

community projects:

  • Opened a pharmacy in Bwawani in 1986

  • Established an informal NGO called ARCNI
    (Association for Rural Children Nutrition
    Improvement) between 1987 and 1999

  • Volunteered as secretary in the Wildlife Management Area of the National Park Wami
    Mbiki from 2002 to 2008

  • Started the construction of Ngerengere River Eco Camp and the first project for
    Sustainable Charcoal in 2006
