Since 2011 there is a partnership between Radio Fadeco in Karagwe and Radio Tonkuhle to afforest the region as much as possible.Thomas Sklorz has visited the station in Africa several times, and its founder Joseph Sekiku has been a frequent guest in Hildesheim. The two have worked together to raise funds for this project.
When we talk about green energy, we mean electricity and gas made from renewable sources: green electricity from the wind, the sun and the sea, and green gas made from organic material and grass. And we don’t just talk about green energy, we make it ourselves – we’ve built a tubular bio gas pant at our Hub in Nyakasimbi to produce gas for cooking from animal waste hence helping to cut the use of firewood which is a reason for the widespread of deforestation across Tanzania
We are proud to be recognized as an outstanding organization in the Road safety campaign. We use our radio platform to educate a population of about 8 Million listeners in Karagwe and many more in Kagera region.We have a clear stand to protect the rights of road users including school going children, people with disabilities, plus the general public.
We have installed a hybrid wind-solar system to provide appropriate and affordable power to our Hub in Nyakasimbi, Karagwe district where majority of the population have a low access to grid power. This provides power for low energy computers with a satellite uplink to the internet enabling access to online information and resources including market price information, educational resources along with hard copy and online publications, awareness raising and advisory services.
With the generous support from our partners, we have so far been able to install rainwater harvesting systems in the region. To date, because of our work, survivors of gender-based human rights abuses and their families now have access to clean water.
We have brought clean water to schools, cutting the burden of students missing classes because of travelling long distances to bring water for their food at school.
In partnership with companies like D-Light, Little Sun, We have helped to provide more children with light to do their homework or read in the evenings, as well as energy for students to charge their mobile phones: the world’s most powerful tool for connectivity and information and we are proud of it. We further strengthen communities from the inside by increasing our support for local economies, to drive greater change, create more opportunities and generate more income for those who deliver solar energy with us.
We are offering volunteer placements to individuals who want to;
