Karagwe Rural Development and Environmental Conservation Agency (KARUDECA) is a local NGO based in Karagwe district, Kagera region, in the north western part of Tanzania. KARUDECA was registered in 2007 to work in Karagwe district Tanzania. Following its good performance, in 2016, it was re-registered to operate all over Tanzania mainland. KARUDECA was founded by Mr. Steven who is a teacher by profession. He was born and raised in Karagwe district, Tanzania where KARUDECA is based. Steven founded KARUDECA because he wanted to serve his community in a different way. Whilst working as a teacher he could see that many students could not pay their school fees or buy school uniforms. He decided to develop KARUDECA to help people develop a sustainable income.
