Our partner, the Community Aid and Small Enterprises Consultancy (known as CASEC) is a non-profit organisation based in Arusha, northern Tanzania.
Established in 1994, CASEC promotes human and social development as the foundation for tackling poverty and injustice. Since its initiation, CASEC has been involved in building the capacity of communities, partners and similar minded stakeholders. The emphasis has been to address poverty and injustices through participatory assessments, evaluations, training, technical advisory services, and community support in kind and in money.
This is achieved by providing training, research and consultancy services for local government, community leaders and non-governmental organisations, as well as undertaking development projects and advocacy activities, which in recent years have become a much larger part of their work. Their main focus areas are girls’ education and urban youth work.
