About Us

Neema Crafts was started in October 2003 by the Diocese of Ruaha. Its purpose is to provide handicrafts training and employment for deaf and physically disabled people in Iringa region, Tanzania, and also to change negative attitudes towards people with disabilities in the local community. Local employers are invited to see how skilled the workers at Neema Crafts quickly become when given the opportunity to fulfil their potential. The high quality of their work is changing the attitude of local people towards disabled people. In February 2009 we moved into our new centre and now as well as a wide range of workshops, we offer a fabulous restaurant (Best Of British, Best Restaurant in the World 2010), a conference facility, an internet cafe, a Physiotherapy Unit serving disabled children and a 10 bedroom guest house (the first disabled run guest house in Africa!)
