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. For more detail on
our projects click here.
Our office is in the small town Bwawani (directly at the
highway between Dar Es Salaam and Morogoro), but we
usually stay at our beautiful Ngerengere River Eco Camp in
village Lukwambe. At the Camp our team plans all our
social projects which are carried out in and with the
communities in our area. Eco Camp is also a place for
networking and partnering with volunteers and guests
from all over the world.
Ngerengere River Eco Camp started in 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 projects are financed through donations and earnings from our ecotourism and other
activities. We do not receive financial support from governments nor international
organizations in order to make sure that we keep our full independence. We tailor our
projects to the needs of the community but not according to criteria from governments or
organizations without expertise in this region.
It is not possible to describe Ngerengere River Eco Camp without mentioning its founder
and director, Mr. Remigius Mushenga (called Remmy by most people). Raised in very poor
conditions in rural Northern Tanzania, he faced similar economic difficulties as people
In the past, he has been involved in
many social community projects:
