Medi Trip has joined the COPECO project (Core of pecea in community organization).

The aim of COPECO is to empower girls and young women to reach their maximum potential, become self reliant and achieve their dreams.  

The girls and young women are taught basic skills with the aim to teach:

  • Self empowerment
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Interaction and social skills 

The project takes place in collaboration with the Holy Foundation School deep in the heart of rural Ngorongoro.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is a protected area and a World Heritage Site located 180 km (110 mi) west of Arusha. The area is named after Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera within the area. Admired for it's breathtaking vast, natural beauty and gracious inhabitants. This is a spectacular backdrop to unforgettable volunteer experience.

This is an ambitious project that is fighting back against the statistics that show that young women in Tanzania are the most disadvantaged population group. They tend to leave school earlier, have children younger and have the least financial independence. The COPECO project aims to shatter the current trend and bring out the untapped potential of it's young girls and women. Message us to make a financial contribution or for more details.
