Abu Bakr in Tanzania

 

My name’s Abu Bakr Baig and I will be carrying out my co-op placement in Arusha, Tanzania, in partnership with WUSC and Green Hope Tanzania. Green Hope Tanzania is a nation-wide NGO that seeks to bring about sound and sustainable socio-economic development of women, children, and youth in Tanzania.

I will be working in the position of Entrepreneurship Officer, which is a role designed to support Green Hope Tanzania in its objective of facilitating and empowering micro-small businesses for women and at risk members of society (such as street youth and other marginalized demographics). My areas of interests in terms of research include the ecotourism industry in Arusha, particularly in Arusha National Park and Kilimanjaro National Park.
