Rural Community Network Tanzania (RUCONET) is a non-governmental, non-profit making, environmental and social justice organization, which works with indigenous groups of different cultures in Tanzania.

The RUCONET aims to strengthen the capacity of local ethnic minorities in northern Tanzania, principally pastoralists and agro-pastoralist to better control, manage and benefit from their lands, natural resources and economic opportunities.  The RUCONET’s ultimate goal is to improve local community and household welfare through improved land, natural resource management and economic opportunities.

The RUCONET focuses on community economic empowerment, orphans education support and natural resources management with pastoralists and agro-pastoralists in northern Tanzania RUCONET seeks to work with resource dependent communities to reinforce the capacities of these communities to influence economic opportunities, orphans education support and natural resource management in their favour. On-going local government reforms in the country have created opportunities for resource dependent communities to secure their rights over the environment and economic opportunity, but communities require capacities for policy action and influence.  They need to be able to engage meaningfully with policy making and policy implementation institutions and processes.  This requires that they understand the policy environment and the existing policy framework.  In that way they will use the opportunities within the existing policies, laws and institutions, and advocate for changes where these are necessary.

VISION:

To see that local Tanzanian community are enabled to achieve individual and collective better life in all essential areas of life such as food, health and medical treatment, education and settlements

MISSION

To provide appropriate sustainable development to the local Tanzanian communities
