The Panje Project - Knowledge . Awareness . Change

The Panje Project (TPP) was established in 2011 to support the educational development of youth in the local Nungwi Village in Zanzibar. The work began after discovering many of the locals were overlooked for work in the nearby hotels and restaurants. The need for labour in the area has risen due to the rise in tourism however many businesses find it difficult to hire local labor due to low educational levels. A high number of locals are poorly educated and lack basic English language skills, leading to majority of hotels importing labour from mainland Tanzania and nearby countries.
