Our Mission


Our mission is to provide rural communities in our target area with the necessary skills to act as self-confident Tanzanian citizens: Knowing about their rights and how to claim them, understanding actual political processes and how to influence them, analyzing reasons for poverty and finding paths of sustainable development.

In the actual situation of imminent uranium mining our special mission is to inform affected communities and the Tanzanian public in general about the effects that uranium mining will have and to assist people to claim their rights.
