Juice for the Future

OUR STORY

ETI is a professional volunteer NGO partnering with developing communities in Tanzania. ETI and partners established an agricultural college on 1000 acres in Karagwe. Now we 1) stand up the Food Processing Plant so KARUCO and area farmers earn money; 2) erect the KARUCO Solar Array to power up the university; and 3) establish the Micro -Enterprise Loan (MEL) Program to jump-start viable businesses! ETI is in the top 1% of U.S. nonprofits. DONATE today.

KARUCO's GRADUATES

A dream come true. ETI and Partners built Karagwe University College of Agriculture (KARUCO) on 1000 acres. So far there have been 115 graduates with more to come. Just think! Hard-working, entrepreneurial, competent grads launching new ventures. Congratulations Graduates!

ETI partners with developing communities in Tanzania to promote and sustain social and economic prosperity through education.

ETI and Tanzanian Partner, KAD, joined hands to establish Karagwe University College which opened October, 2018 on 1000 acres. Since 2020's first graduation, KARUCO now has over 100 entrepreneurial alumni specializing in modern business and services in agriculture. ETI, KAD and partners are expanding upon their successes by building the Rural Opportunity Center (BE Design Architects, NY). Through the ROC, KARUCO grads and area farmers will start or grow businesses and gain access to viable markets. To support such efforts, ETI has initiated the Micro-Enterprise Loan (MEL) Program to jumpstart entrepreneurial business initiatives in Karagwe. In addition, EVS Engineering (Minnesota), ETI, KAD and partners designed the KARUCO Solar and Storage system which will provide consistent power to the university. You can be part of these amazing successes.

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!

Drawings by BE Design, NY. 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' who exploit them. ETI and partners are changing this. 

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 Architects (NY), have 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 solutions: Global support.

Your donations along with funding from EVS CARES have enabled ETI, KAD and EVS Engineering (MN) to meet together in Karagwe in 2020 to begin the design of the KARUCO Solar and Storage System (25KW). RESCO Solar in Tanzania has completed the design of the system that will power up KARUCO's buildings and entrepreneurial campus initiatives. Procurement of materials is underway and construction will begin the day materials arrive in Karagwe. KARUCO's geographical location so near the equator and the abundance of sunshine, makes it a great candidate for solar energy. Water and power should not be luxuries. You can have a place in this chapter of KARUCO's success.
