Eco Programs is a dedicated organization for environmental conservation and sustainable development. It's establishment started in 1998. Eco Programs comprises of a group of Tanzanians professionals in the field of environmental engineering, civil and water resource engineering, agricultural economics, business administration, marketing, forestry, energy specialists, arts & culture who decided, to join their hands and professional skills in supporting a worldwide campaign for environmental conversation. Its overall aim of establishment is, to provide a countrywide level of environmental awareness and management by actively involving the communities at the grassroots level, to participate in the conversation of their environment for a sustainable development.
Eco Programs is running eco tourism programme primarily for protection of natural resources, through an active participation of local people. Protection of natural resources e.g. waterfalls, lakes, rivers, natural forest etc is the focal point of this programme. Secondly, eco tourism programme works for improving the social and economic status of the community involved through increased agricultural production, diffusion of appropriate technology in areas like sanitation, water, building etc.
The objectives from which Eco Programs is found are:
- to increase the level of knowledge, understanding and appreciation of environmental issues within Tanzania society by concentrating on the nature, extent and causes of environmental problems and the available practical solution particularly at the grassroots level,
- to stimulate and promote an active use and adaption of environmentally sound technologies,
- to provide a forum for an exchange and transfer of information, knowledge and technology between communities, groups and institutions sharing the same interest on environmental concerns.
