Relief to Development Society

REDESO concerns with relief and development to local and international displaced communities and other vulnerable local communities. Since the inception, the organization has been one of the leading projects implementing partner to the UNHCR in refugee camps and local communities in Tanzania. REDESO has also initiated and managed project assignments for the government of Tanzania, international organizations, donor agencies and local NGOs. However, REDESO constitution provides for working even beyond Tanzania.

The organization was formed in 1998 to manage relief and development programs in Tanzania and outside the country if and when it is necessary. The 1994-96 genocides in Burundi and Rwanda led to an influx of thousands of refugees into Tanzania. As one of the poorest countries in Sub Saharan Africa, Tanzania experienced various problems ranging from ecological to socio-economical. REDESO was formed to intervene to bring relief to refugees and the host communities.

The organization has focused on alleviating negative impact of refugees on the environment and the local communities. However, REDESO also advocates maintaining all positive impacts from refugees, for the good of national development. Currently REDESO is providing environmental management, sustainable agricultural activities, vocational training and natural resource management in Ngara, Kibondo, Mpanda, Kasulu, Kigoma, Urambo, and Handeni districts. the organization is also implementing UNHCR funded construction projects in Mpanda, Urambo and Ilemela district.

Furthermore the organization works with the Government of Tanzania to facilitate a big world bank funded water project in Tanga and Mtwara regions
