Art in Tanzania and its partners work with the Tanzanian corporate and government institutions to tackle Corporate Social Responsibility issues. These topics also include actions against climate change. .
In the Western world, private citizens' social responsibility is commonly well recognized and introduced in school curriculums and in public advocacy programs. In Tanzania, private citizens’ social responsibility is poorly known, and the public is not informed about climate change. Corporate policies don’t take social responsibility issues into serious consideration.
At the same time, Tanzania is one of the countries where climate change is strongly affecting the agriculture-based economy. This program’s goal is to educate the schools and public about social responsibility and to deliver the message in the schools with the help of the Tanzanian business community.
Presently we work with entities such as Dar es Salaam University, TWIGA Cement, Airtel, PVC, NBC Bank, and Coca-Cola, and we are extending the program further. The field operations include working in a tree nursery and partaking in planting operations. This program has a cross-cutting focus where students of different professions can attend and work together.
