Bwejuu Zanzabar
Roadmonkey Project
July 2011

Bwejuu community Charitable Organization in Zanzibar and Roadmonkey, a California based philanthropic adventure travel company, have joined forces to promote poultry production to orphans of Bwejuu village in Zanzibar!

Bwejuu community Charitable Organization in non profit NGO established in 2001, in Bwejuu village, South District of Unguja Island for the purpose of providing orphans and underprivileged different types of education, business skills, environmental conservation and management, leadership skills and individual talent development.

It currently has 219 orphans and underprivileged children and 16 teachers and the community of Bwejuu have benefited from various projects and education scheme thus improving on their standard of living and reducing poverty.


Roadmonkey is a philanthropic organization which combines a challenging adventure with a hands-on volunteer project that offers a transformative international experience. Travelers visiting Zanzibar will directly contribute to the welfare of the local people.

Bwejuu community Charitable Organization is located in the village's heart of tourism centre with subsistence farming in the form of shifting cultivation as the main activity of the village. Farming is done in the coral forest where production is insufficient for house hold consumption. The low production of produce is caused mainly by poor fertile soils and this increasing to their level of poverty since most of the production is consumed and none sold to earn an income. This contributing to over exploitation of the scarce resources and environment.


Bwejuu community Charitable Organization is setting up a poultry production project to reduce poverty. Roadmonkey expedition volunteers will work together with the organization to construct chicken houses. The products from the project will be eggs and meat which has already market in the village that will be sold to the tourist hotels in the area. Addition to that the waste got from the chicken will be used as manure by individual farmers to boast the fertility of their soils. This will contribute to the improvement and quantity of their production especially vegetables that can also be sold to the tourist hotels.

The construction of the chicken houses will be done together with the community upon arrival of the Roadmonkey travelers July 26 thorugh July 30, 2011 as part of the Roadmonkey's philanthropic adventure!
