CHAKO Zanzibar is an organization dedicated to raising awareness about the island’s waste problem among both tourists and locals. It engages craft workers in workshops to teach them about upcycling and encourages them to create products from waste materials, fostering both social and economic empowerment. CHAKO collaborates with various partners on the island to provide a larger platform for local artisans using recycled materials. Their activities include collecting empty bottles and plastics from hotels, resorts, and restaurants, integrating the concept of recycling into the daily lives of locals. The organization’s efforts also extend to teaching and guiding local artisans in creativity and expanding their product ranges, thereby increasing economic opportunities.
