Challenges in the community

Global partnership for development


Kagera Region is geographically located very far from the capital city of Tanzania (Dar es Salaam). The poor road infrastructure until recently, made the region inaccessible for a long time. Today, accessibility and the fact that the region is bordered by other countries, i.e. Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi, has made the region one of the fastest growing in infrastructure.


There are shared natural resources in the East African countries. A good example is Lake Victoria, others include mountains and forests. With the sharing, the nations have to work together to conserve whatever resources there are. This promotes the partnership in and outside these nations. Different organizations globally work together to ensure that the resources are well taken care of.


With the growth in the tourism industry (Kiroyera Tours) in the Kagera Region, there is need for an international network whereby the region is marketed internationally. Other areas will boast of their wildlife, etc, but the Kagera Region will boast of its rich culture, beautiful and rare birds, historical sites and monuments. The local community is very welcoming and hospitable.


Heritage Initiative recruits volunteers to assist with projects, promote cultural diversity and foster understanding and friendships among people throughout the world. HI will actively recruit volunteers in cooperation with existing organizations and freelance volunteers to assist with projects and areas of interest.


The development of international partnership will be of help to the local community. The volunteers, researchers and tourists will help in the alleviation of poverty since they will market the region internationally. HI is ready to recruit volunteers and create an exchange program with student volunteers for the welfare of the community at large.


The volunteers share their skills and knowledge with the local community. HI will ensure the success and sustainability of community programs after volunteers return to their countries. The result will be that disadvantaged groups stand to gain from the assistance they will be given opportunities for educational pursuits, skills to assist in attaining employment and medical/educational assistance in preventing diseases.
