Helen Clear, Researcher – Third Blog Post from Tanzania

Today I visited Tunaweza, which is a day centre for people with

disabilities where they are taught various skills including cooking,

sewing & various crafts like card and bracelet making. Everything that

is made is for sale and the proceeds are reinvested in the charity.

The students stay for 2 years with the hope that they will be able to

use the skills they have learnt to set up their own small businesses.

It is almost impossible in Mwanza for a disabled person to find

employment so Tunaweza is a very special and important charity.

This is Stefano who manages Tunaweza. He is a very kind and inspirational man who clearly works hard, he is very passionate about the charity and really cares about his students.
