Art in Tanzania (NGO) is looking for an experienced professional person to help lead our eco-campus development in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

So far we have built rooms with locally sourced bamboo, dry toilets and a simple greywater gathering system. We want to develop the greywater system, build huts with natural and ecological materials sourced locally, and implement renewable energy solutions for the campus. We are also looking to develop new and sustainable waste-management systems.

While building the eco-campus, we will also introduce and teach local builders, youth and international volunteers or interns, different techniques in ecological living.

Environmental and Natural Building leaders and their teams will also be tasked with helping to implement our treehouse community and other innovative concepts. We currently have eight acres of non-developed land area.
