Holistic Vision: Rural Opportunity Centers

Educate Tanzania is committed to the intentions and education of the people in Karagwe, Tanzania and its surrounding area. Since its inception in 2010, Educate Tanzania has partnered with Rev Dr. Benson Bagonza and other leaders in Karagwe to help them bring Karagwe University College to life. On 1000 acres, the college opened in Fall, 2018, graduated its first cohort in 2020 and teaches students new methods of farming and agriculture-related business. Next steps focus on development of Rural Opportunity Centers (ROCs) so graduates can return to their communities and start or grow a business after KARUCO. Our first step is building a Pineapple Juice Processing Plant to create business, increase incomes, ensure fair trade and gender equity, reduce crop waste and improve community health.
