Umoja wa wawezeshaji KIOO was founded in 2001 as a response to the challenges with child labor and sexual exploitation of young women and children. What began as a campaign to raise awareness and try to enact child labor protection laws quickly became something bigger. Instead of just addressing the effects, we began addressing the root cause of the region’s problems. Especially, the low level of education among young people, women and people with disability in rural areas and the challenges of economic inclusion.

For almost 20 years we have been working with Kigoma local communities to provide children and young adults with basic education and get them into the regions’ work force. Over time KIOO has increased its scope to include many other challenges facing the poor and the marginalized groups primarily living in Kigoma. Today KIOO is an organization working towards improving the living standards across the entire region and is involved in a wide range of projects focusing on increasing the level of self-sufficiency among the most vulnerable groups in the region.
