Member of FUWAVITA We fulfill the obligation to be a tool that will unite the Deaf to promote entrepreneurship and small business in Tanzania. By recognizing, understanding and the need to change we have realized that so far no efforts are being made by various authorities, Institutions, associations or individuals within our country on developing entrepreneurship and small business for the Deaf community in the country. We feel that we have not had the same opportunity to move forward due to poor coordination, so there has been a need to establish FUWAVITA with a vision of pushing the development of entrepreneurship and small business to the Deaf within the Republic of Tanzania.
