Kyela Envirocare trains local tour guides to show clients Kyela’s attractions and the villages en route. It is our belief that tourists should be hosted by the people living near the
attractions for their own financial sustainability and cultural exchange between tourists and residents.
One of our main Environmental Conservation projects is tree planting. This involves the preparation of nurseries as well as the planting itself. In the towns, we plant in open spaces
and streets for shade and decoration. In the villages, we plant both for firewood for the use of village families, as well as to replace the trees that have already been cut to produce
charcoal. This project is in accordance with the Tanzanian government’s conservation policy target of planting 1,500,000 trees/year in every district throughout the country by 2025.
This group was formed with the main aim of public awareness creation to Cultural Tourism and Environmental Conservation. The participants in the drama group are members of our
organization. The group travels to various villages in Kyela for awareness creation and participation in the activities. We intend to develop the group to the point of creating audio
cassettes, video cassettes and DVDs, for income-generating purposes.Exhibitions,competitions are included in the plan
Arts & Crafts
Kyela Envirocare encourages and inspires its members as well as other residents of Kyela’s towns and villages which are primary,secondary and college students in schools and those not in schools
to use the resources surrounding them (eg. bamboos,clay,banana leaves) to create art-pieces for sale. This work is intended to activate their creativity together with pro activity and
transform them from financial dependence to profit making. It also has the effect of keeping residents (including youth) occupied and away from destructive activities such as drugs, alcohol,
and sex abuse, activities which can endanger their own lives as well as those of others.
