Climate Change Effect on Socio-Economy in Africa
Some 75% of Tanzanian people live in rural areas, and their livelihood, based on agricultural income, will be harshly affected by climate change. The vulnerable groups as women, youth and people living with disabilities, are most affected. This program is a multi-professional student approach to evaluate present changes and future scenarios and to develop solution models.
Community Sports Programs
Our Community Sports Programs focus mainly on football coaching and community weekend exercise programs. In addition, the village youth teams consist of children coming from low-income families. We also assist the local schools in their sports curriculum implementation, highlighting girls' sports activities. Social media visibility is essential to advocate the sport and health approach to the public in common.
Corporate Social Responsibility
In Tanzania, the private citizen's social responsibility is poorly known, and the public in common does not know about climate change either. Corporate policies are not seriously including social responsibility issues. At the same time, Tanzania is one country where climate change strongly affects the agriculture-based economy. This program is to advocate for the schools and the public in common about social responsibility and to take the Tanzanian business community to help us deliver the school's message. We work with Tanzanian entities University of Dar es Salaam, Coca-Cola, NBC Bank, PVC, Airtel, etc.

Your placement is to develop the advocacy programs and to perform Oeldwork in the schools and women's groups. An essential part of the work is cooperating with community-level NGOs, producing social media advocacy content, and developing digital media visibility platforms. Human Rights focus is also part of the Corporate Social Responsibility tasks.

Village Education Support
We assist in Village Education programs. Interns and volunteers attend field assistance work in the nursery, primary and secondary schools. Afternoons we run adult vocational training at the student compound. Tanzanian education standard is inferior, and schools lack all essential facilitation as proper sanitation, clean water, power, and facilitation. Students can assist in empowering daily education tasks.
Village Women Support
Tanzania has a large group of young mothers in the villages with little or no education and without financial support. Most of these women lack the opportunity to reach education or the means to fund and develop small businesses. Additionally, many of these women are under-empowered or unaware of their fundamental human rights, thus making young mothers vulnerable to abuse. Green Works Africa focuses on delivering skills for women to start small businesses and create markets for their products. At the same time, we educate women's rights and related subjects so that women will learn their rights in problem situations. We focus on being both innovative and effective.
