Meet our team


To strengthen local community through the promotion of education and access to health care and information, in the hope of building capacity and resilience within our more deprived sectors.

To develop sustainable livelihood and conservation programs within our region, whilst promoting human rights, advocacy and positive life choices and decisions


The major objective of CCDO has been to establish a school that will offer education to local pre-primary & primary children from the poorer villages, secondary level and vocational training to Iringa youth and adults. The primary section is up and running, serving over 70 pupils and the vocational training centre opens its doors in July 2016. At present, our goal is to consolidate these services at our Peace Flame School site in Nduli, which requires further fundraising and building work.

We have established a solid microfinancing scheme for women and vulnerable adults, currently helping around 80 women & men in the wider districts, and this year, we will be expanding this service to reach more families in need. CCDO is also involved in various local conservation, education and health projects, reliant on NGO, government and UN funding proposals and grants.

From there, further goals include: offering a teaching diploma at the Peace Flame School; establishing a rural health centre to improve child and women’s quality of life; further expansion of the microfinancing scheme to support grassroots projects; ongoing conservation and climate change programs
