Project Review

The program provides technical assistance, training, research, product development, market linkages and advocacy services. The program envisions a time in the near future when Tanzanian small holder farmers, entrepreneurs and consumers benefit in terms of raw materials, income, health, environmental enhancement and affordable products from Jatropha curcas. The overall goal is to promote the planting and exploitation of the multiuser specie for economic energy and environmental benefit of rural producers and consumers everywhere while promoting all forms of community services for the purpose of socio-economic development.

Major Responsibilities

    Job Responsibilities: 

    The program needs volunteers to help improve on weak areas within the organization and learn from each other by sharing experiences and knowledge of benefits of Jatropha growing within the smallholder farming communities. Volunteers are required to help in training, office administration, field visits, proposal writing and research works. They can also participate in farmer's demonstrations equipment and product testing.

Any Missing Important Information

    Weather: Despite its closeness to the equator, Arusha's elevation of 1,400 m on the southern slopes of Mount Meru keeps temperatures down and alleviates humidity. Cool dry air is prevalent for much of the year. The temperature ranges between 13°C and 30°C with an average around 25°C. Arusha has distinct wet and dry seasons, and experiences an eastern prevailing wind from the Indian Ocean, a few hundred miles east. Highest average rainfall occurs in March, April and May. Arusha is considered to be one of the best African cities when it comes to great weather and tourism combined.
