We like to learn new things so as to improve our daily activities/operations. If you want to share an ideas even if your idea isn't related to our project,organization goals or visions we will listen, please share with us and see how we can work together.

Tengeneza Generation (TEG) was founded in 2011 by a group of young people passionate about local and sustainable development. In 2014, it was registered as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). Here at TEG, we believe that youth leadership is the key catalyst in the delivery of sustainable outcomes for our communities.
We have identified three key areas for development in our rural communities:
1. Diminishing natural resources which help to nourish the community both physically and economically.
2. Discrimination of marginalised groups including those with disabilities or albinism.
3. A lack of awareness of the importance of sustainable living and the impact the environment has on socio-economic growth.
Vision & Values

Our vision is to facilitate positive transformation at the community level, leading to active local participation in effective development programs which are inclusive and respectful of local culture. Our values of freedom, creativity and hard work guide us in all that we do.

By 2025, our mission is to build sustainable projects in over 5000 locations and engage over 45,000 of local young people in the active participation of project upkeep, along-side our network of national & international volunteers.
