Powering Potential provided consulting services to Educate Tanzania in assessing the technology needs for a new college being built in Tanzania. Educate Tanzania and Evangelical Lutheran Church Karagwe Diocese have partnered to build the Karagwe University College (KARUCO) in the Karagwe District/Kagera Region near Lake Victoria in northwest Tanzania. KARUCO will focus mainly on agriculture and environmental studies. The team at KARUCO reached out to Powering Potential to assist in establishing the technology for the school.
