About Us

Chipua: Institute for Social Transformation is a grassroot non-government organisation (NGO) based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania!

Chipua seeks to advance the social development of underprivileged, at risk and vulnerable youth, especially girls, through a holistic program that focuses on technical, artistic, social and moral education. Participants are empowered to lead meaningful lives and become agents of positive social change in their community by:

Developing technical skills to assist them in becoming financially self-sufficient;

Reinforcing the positive character attributes necessary to boost their self-esteem and confidence through artistic expression and traditional curriculum; and

Learning appropriate fundamental moral attitudes to become responsible and contributing citizens of the global community.
