Karibu! - Welcome! - to Twende

Twende is a young Tanzanian NGO dedicated to improving the lives and fortunes of African people by the development and promotion of appropriate technology.

Take a look inside at what we've achieved in the short time we've been up and running, and how we can help local entrepreneurs.

Even better, if you have an interest in this field, contact us - we'd love to hear from you! If you’re in Arusha, drop in at our office - you’ll find our address on the Contact Us page.


Earlier in the year, our website news was that we were just moving into our new offices on the Nanenane site at Njiro, a short drive from the centre of Arusha.

Unfortunately, remedial work on the building slowed things down, but finally we were able to complete the move by when the heavy metal-working machines were transferred from their temporary home in General Manager Jim Elsworth’s back garden to their spacious new engineering workshop where they are now hard at work (right).
