The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another. The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. The goals provide clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large. Realization of these goals by 2030 will depend much on various factors on which Grassroots ownership is one of them. This International work camp is therefore aiming to make contribution through nature conservation activities. It is also a platform for volunteers and other interested members to become stimulated to contribute their own ideas and energies, thus contributing to live debates on sustainable issues.

Most Schools in Tanzania has long vacation in the month of June and December where students stays home. During this time, kids are expected to join family members for extracurricular activities, educational tours and other studies outside class rooms. However the experience has indicated that, most students does not have any structured activities that are fully involving them for personal and academic development. As a result, bad influence in the society during holiday time has affected the kids significantly since they join different peer groups and with limited supervision of their parents or guardian. This project is therefore aiming to fill the gap through effective utilizing vocation time to allow student/kids to join structured activities that we will contribute to their growth as well allow parents to consternate in productive economic activities.

It is believed that the world’s population recently passed more than 7 billion people, an incredible number to measure. In Tanzania, Africa as well around the world many people still barely meet anyone outside of a small circle of family, friends and community while even more never venture beyond the culture in which they were raised. Cultural exposure project is aiming to serve as an important means of introducing people around the world to realities they might not normally be exposed to. Many barriers have begun to fall between people around the world, with near-instantaneous communication allowing people on opposite sides of the world to meaningfully interact. Cultural exposure project encourage people from all walks of life to appreciate and understand distinct cultures and play a key role in creating productive dialogue across the world.

Nature and Culture are two different terms but interconnected since one affect another. Conservation of the both has been popular topic over the decades now. This is due to the fact that, human activities are increasing every other day hence interfering the nature and cultures. 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.
