Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro Region is sadly notorious for violence on women. In the fight against gender based-violence, the Kilimanjaro Women Information Exchange and Consultancy Organization (KWIECO) collaborated with the Finnish government and non-profit Ukumbi to build the KWIECO women’s Shelter House, a refuge made with local materials and renewable energies. Designed by Ukumbi architects Saija Hollmén, Jenni Reuter and Helena Sandman, the brightly colored Shelter House completed its first phase, comprising housing for victims of domestic violence, in March 2015.
