Art in Tanzania works to improve the preparedness and resilience of the Tanzanian people against both natural and artificial environmental disasters. In Tanzania, disaster management is not widely known, and the communities are ill-equipped in the case of a disaster. Threats to Tanzanian people and property include flooding, earthquakes, landslides, diseases like malaria and cholera, famine, global warming due to climate change, and industrial incidents from poor health and safety working conditions. This program aims to educate Tanzanian people and raise awareness about their significant threats. We work with schools and corporations to provide education on all stages, from the early prevention, mitigation, and preparation to the final stages of evacuation and response. Interns involve private and public institutions and help them to develop emergency plans, evaluate risks and current systems, and create tailored and reliable evacuation plans that could save lives. First Aid and health and safety are not widely known, so as part of our disaster management training, Art in Tanzania also looks to educate the community on these topics.
Development of emergency plans
Work with schools and organisations, evaluate current safety precautions, assess most likely disaster threats according to the area, develop emergency plans, and make recommendations for increased health and safety measures and disaster prevention.
Education and Awareness
Visit schools, prepare presentations and classes, educate local people on natural and artificial disasters that threaten them, advocate health and safety, and explain and alert people to the emergency plans you will develop.
First AID/health and safety
Bring first aid knowledge with you or develop it while in Tanzania, teach this to people in the community, such as teachers and staff, and provide invaluable knowledge that could save lives.
