MAMA HOPE Sustainability Conference 2018

MS TCDC, Usa River, Arusha, Tanzania | August 13–17, 2018

Join us for our 4th annual Partners Sustainability Conference, where we’ll continue to explore the definition of sustainability and discover tools and strategies we can put to use to encourage sustainability within our own organizations and communities. During the 4-day conference, through a variety of activities and with the help of some amazing collaborators, we will work together to visualize sustainability at all levels — the project work level, the internal organizational level, the community and environmental resilience level and at the level of national policy making.

and political understandings of this important term.
