through serving a local delicacy to visitors, SPI is both creating jobs for women in the village of Kaole and improving their relationship with local cultural heritage
Eleven local women have formed a business called Wauto-Kaole. This stands for WAmama (women), Utamaduni (heritage/culture) na TOndo (shellfish) in Swahili!
The women have received training in business skills and begun selling soup of visitors.
Tanzania’s government banned plastic bags in 2019, so Wauto-Kaole began weaving and selling beautiful reusable products using traditional techniques.
The site authorities are very happy with the project and relationships are improving!
The Big thing we have learned
Good relationships can be developed with hard work and local knowledge!
The business is just beginning and the women need more training to make it sustainable. We need your help to do that!
