Captain Kelly Advises: Small Business Development

Are you a PCV rocking out with a small business development project? Are your mamas doing biashara of some sort? Have you heard of the SIDO (Small Industries Development Organization) office? Every banking town has one of these offices and they are a great resource for all your business needs. Need jars for jam or bottles for honey? They got them! They can also provide small business development education. Bring your mamas to them or bring them to your mamas for education on how to be an entrepreneur, record keeping, budgeting, etc

Captain Kelly Advises: Water Projects

Are you doing a water project? Is water an issue you are addressing in some way? Did you know that all water in Tanzania is managed by a government office called the Water Basin Office? The Water Basin Office is responsible for issuing water use permits and providing training and education about water management, as well as monitoring and governing water use in Tanzania. Most villagers think this job happens in the district government offices. This is not the case! The job of the water folks in the district offices is to advise in engineering matters only.
