Jamii Technology Program
The Jamii Technology Program (JTP) is an eight - week design program that connects international teams to do context driven design with and for members of the Arusha community. Teams consist of a Tanzanian community partner, Tanzanian youth, and international design or engineering students. Each team collaborates to design and make a solution to a problem identified by the community partner. Teams are supported by Twende staff and other mentors. The program seeks to develop the competence and confidence of all involved, specifically, in the design process, creative problem solving, local production, and cross-cultural collaboration.
