Introduction

 

MUVEK was found in October 2005 to provide innovative development solutions to Tanzanian problems. The key focus was initially in Agriculture and Rural Development in general. Later Education and Health sectors were added after they were found to be strongly interwoven with agriculture and rural development themes.

 

The gap identified by the founders was absence of institutions that have the flexibility to use public resources to play both public and private sector roles which are necessary in facilitating innovation for rural growth. The rural sector needs to gain business capacities which cannot be built by actors who exclusively play public or private sector roles. Read More

 

 

 

Staff profile

 

Recognizing the non-recurring and diverse nature of the company’s work, it is the company’s policy not to incur fixed costs on professional staff for services which can be outsourced and contracted on part time / assignment basis. Therefore whereas we shall meet our risk and brand criteria the “GO TO MARKET” approach will be on basis of lean and multi-skilled consultants. Consultants’ requirements in excess of this lean base will be met through careful use of high quality alliance consultants/ professionals. To enhance the Company’s capability, MUVEK collaborates with associate consultants based in and outside Tanzania. However, full-time staff areprovided for all programmes and project as needed Read More
