On the coast of Paje beach, the Mwani Center embodies the spirit of Zanzibari community and sustainable living. This local women’s cooperative practices seaweed farming, nurturing the marine flora with a blend of traditional knowledge and a touch of modern-day sustainability practices and then transforming it into unique organic soaps, scrubs and essential oils.
The cooperative not only contributes to the local economy but also stands as a beacon of empowerment, demonstrating the significant strides women can make in fostering community-based sustainable ventures. Visitors to Paje have the unique opportunity to witness this eco-friendly endeavor through guided tours of the seaweed farms. These tours offer an immersive experience into the daily lives of the seaweed farmers. The calm rhythm of the tides, coupled with the meticulous care showcased in the farming practices, makes for a truly enlightening experience.
The Mwani Center is more than just a cooperative; it’s a testament to the harmonious blend of community, sustainability, and the bountiful nature of Zanzibar. We highly recommend a visit! Learn more about the cooperative and their products on their official website.
