Project hosted by

Climate change is a topic that is become popular these days due to its importance. Climate change is contribute with different factors on which human activities are play key part. This project is focusing on complex question; whether we can conserve nature and culture hence design sustainable communities for our future. Marangu is a community gifted with natural attraction like forest, water sources and water falls, landscapes, green vegetation throughout the year etc. However the nature has been significantly affected by human activities. Most families still maintain traditional style of cooking their meals on the ground in the house over an open flame. As a traditional house usually has only one room, the whole house is filled with the smoke before and after meals. The smoke is thick and stays in the house as only a little hole in the roof allows for ventilation. As a result, acute respiratory and eye diseases are a significant problem for mostly women and children. Additionally, this form of cooking requires large amount of firewood, which puts pressure on the Mount Kilimanjaro forest and thus a major contributor of forest destruction leading to climate change.

Some studies have recorded that, this group in the society is spending more time in schools than home. Therefore, physical environment of school buildings and grounds is one of the key factors in the overall health, safety and security for children, staff, and visitors. Academic and personal development of children are influenced by different factors including school facilities which are free of health and safety hazards and promote learning hence contributing to their bright future.
