Since then, TWESA has continued to focus on providing WASH solutions to refugees and rural communities in north-western Tanzania.
TWESA is registered as an NGO in Tanzania under the Societies’ Ordinance (CAP) 337. We are a non-profit, non-political and non-religious NGO.
TWESA’s head office is located in Dar es Salaam, the largest city in Tanzania, and we have three field offices in western and north-western Tanzania. Our number of staff varies depending on which and how many projects are in progress, but as of the end of 2015, we have approximately 140 national staff and over 400 refugee staff.
TWESA’s activities focus on sustainable, community-appropriate WASH solutions. This can include construction of water points, construction of latrines, construction of hand washing facilities, community hygiene awareness campaigns and school-based WASH education programs.
