Zenji Zanzibar believes that tourism can fight poverty.
The aim of the projects of Zenji Zanzibar is to create (in)direct income for the rural local community by stimulating local entrepreneurship, encouraging tourists to participate in local tours, providing training on the job and capacity building. Zenji Zanzibar works together with local organisations, NGO's, private companies, educational institutions and enthusiastic and motivated persons.
Zenji Hotel is an example of how local economy is stimulated and how local community can be involved. All the furniture and handicrafts in the rooms are created by Zanzibarian craftsmen. The food is bought from local people or homemade by our chef. All the staff are from Tanzania. Through the Zenji Zanzibar projects, capacity building is provided to the staff.
