This project has been designed to enhance environmental sustainability as an answer to the needs of preserving the environment of Tunguu and Tumbe village, Zanzibar. In Tanzania, the environmental awareness is almost nonexistent, contrary to Europe where people hear a lot about this kind of issue. There is no developed waste industry, no waste sorting, no recycling and so on.
