ARTI-TZ moved to a new office February 1st of this year. The move will give us the space to better facilitate our projects. The office is now home to our Lighting Rural Tanzania Project (LRTC) with the support of the Rural Energy Agency (REA) and our Waste to Wealth Project through the World Bank’s Biomass Energy Initiative for Africa (BEIA). The new space also allows us to better promote our technologies with room for our charcoal kilns and a display area for our solar products.
In order to celebrate the opening of our new office ARTI-TZ welcomed children from the Mosque in our community. We prepared food and enjoyed a small celebration as a way to give thanks for all the support we have received since our beginnings in 2007.
ARTI-TZ also welcomed new faces to its team in February.
Jacqueline Michael, who has a Bachelors Degree in Economics from the University of Dar es Salaam will join the team as Project Officer for the Lighting Rural Tanzania Project (LRTC). Jacqueline will be assisted by Abdalla Seushi who will work as the LRTC Field Officer.
James Mariwa has joined the ARTI-TZ team full time as a Technician/Trainer. Having assisted in previous trainings James is well versed in charcoal kiln fabrication and is quickly becoming skilled in the fabrication of compact biogas systems.
ARTI-TZ would like to the thank our customers and supporters for enabling us to make this next profound step towards bringing affordable and appropriate energy solutions to all Tanzanians. We hope to have continued success with your support.
