TATU Project is a not for profit organization focusing on the equal
and sustainable development of the rural communities of Msitu wa Tembo
and Londoto, located outside the town of Moshi at the base of Mount
Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
For more than two years now, TATU Project
has been working with a women’s group in different ways. Since their
capital is limited but their will and vision had been demonstrated, we
developed our Economic Empowerment Program, W.E. Thrive, in order to
provide them with more capital and knowledge, and to accelerate the
group’s financial and business growth. A whole micro-credit system has
been being designed together with the women of the group, and its
implementation is planned to start in the first quarter of 2016. Two
businesses of the group are underway – a bicycle rental business, with a
spares shop to come, and a wholesale shop. Several entrepreneurial
trainings are scheduled, facilitating these group businesses’ planning
and their individual business’, plus guaranteeing the proper investment
of the micro-loans.
We are looking for a Project Coordinator to

Coordinator, to help to support setting up successful businesses returns

planning when faced with challenges and adjustments are needed.
