TAREO was founded in 2002 by a group of 5 Tanzanians who had formed a clear and longstanding commitment to guide rural communities to a better life by education in the field of Information and Communication Technology. Until then the many attempts of reformation appeared to go nowhere but more unequality.
Before its official foundation, TAREO started in the early ’00s to operate on village level with youth and community training, usage of ICT for information access and provision of entrepreneurship skills to young girls and boys in rural Tanzania.
With this in mind, the founders of TAREO sought to create an organization to enable the ordinary rural community to make a difference in the social sectors. The founding members and board of directors of TAREO include leaders of civil society, NGOs, universities, media houses, legal institutions, and research and development institutions in Tanzania. Together, we elaborated a strategy to tackle the problems in rural Tanzania which has proven as very successful over the last years.
