Project SHINE in Tanzania
Nyuat (Hard working initiatives)
Nyuat aims to spread SHINE far and wide in communities in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to see that others benefit from the project. Beneficiaries include women and children, out-of-school youth and those who are disabled who may not reached by educational campaigns, pregnant women, and others in the community.
The group offers education and awareness-raising outreach efforts within the community in partnership with a local hospital. Nyuat is also pursuing soap making as a social enterprise and is targeting safari lodges in the area as well as hoping to provide low cost soap for local markets in addition to increasing international sales.
