    ... seaweed farmers in Zanzibar, about 450 of them are working in Paje.

    • The idea behind the Seaweed Center is to guarantee the women better working conditions and enriching the product for example by making seaweed soap. The soap can be sold to hotels and tourists and in that way increasing the monthly income of the local women.
