About Us

Karibu Tanzania Organization (KTO) is working with all 55 Folk Development Colleges (FDCs) in Tanzania. KTO was established 1990 as a result of cooperation between Tanzania and Sweden through Folk Development Colleges in Tanzania and Swedish Folk High Schools.

KTO together with the FDCs have a long experience of folk education, adult learning, pedagogical work, rural development and have been providing training for young adults all over Tanzania. The majority of the FDCs are operating in rural areas and their primary mission is to provide access to training in areas relevant to their local communities.

This training consists of vocational training and general knowledge such as entrepreneurship, life skills, civic education, and communication skills. Training involves personal development, strengthening capacity for the participants to acquire new knowledge, developing skills to acquire formal employment or self employment, and continuing their studies after completing the courses.

KTO works closely with the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and with national and international partners. KTO has a nationwide network that has the capacity to reach many people through their cooperation with FDCs. KTO is politically and religiously independent. The board of directors, chosen at the annual meeting, governs the organization. KTO has a secretariat with employed staff members dealing with day-to-day activities.
