The initiative to support education aims at exposing the younger generation to a world of wider possibilities. The goal is to introduce youth to future career options that will reduce their need to become involved in the destruction of the environment. It started in 2008 with sponsorship of eleven secondary school students from Saadani village whose family could not afford paying for them. Gongo and Matipwili villages were later added into the program and up to now total number of 18 youths have benefited from this program.
The efforts have been extended to support the village schools of Saadani with desks enough for 200 children, solar power system to help the school use visual methods of teaching, daily morning porridge for all children, 160 text books for Science, Mathematics, Social Studies, Geography, History, Kiswahili and English, stationeries and sports materials such as volleyball, net and balls.
SANA have also been organizing school events for students to have fun and meet different professionals among friends of SANA. Here, games, sports and academic challenges are done.
SANA believes supporting the Communities find alternative and sustainable ways of earning income is key to ensure their participation in Conservation.
We facilitate Communities efforts in projects initiation and sustainability through voluntary services and donations.
Projects that have received support from SANA include organic agriculture of vegetables run by women group of Matipwili village. Thomas Wouters from Belgium did an amazing job in teaching the participants of this project processing organic compost, growing seedlings, appropriate ways of planting, harvesting and deliveries.
In the efforts to improve Community health, friends of SANA built a dispensary for the Gongo village that was completed in 2014 and started running under the government supervision. Volunteers, Areti Arvaniti, Elpis and Dora joined SANA to help the community with free dental services and renovation of the building.
SANA has also helped the Community get a water well to reduce problem of lack of water facing the community and has formed partnership with Malkia Honey Limited in facilitate community beekeeping project.
We are looking forward to see more projects and growing partnerships between the community, SANA and other entities with the same theme and together to reduce the engagement of the communities into charcoal and logging business.
