In May 2017 AJISO visited UZIKWASA a non- government organization located in Pangani Tanga for two days experience sharing together with another organization called ELCT- MERU from Arusha who works in the same thematic area.
The visit entailed a round table discussion where each organization shared techniques, challenges and success they face in their projects and also there was a field visit to one of the villages where the project is conducted and met with the beneficiaries of the project.
All in all the entire visit was very beneficial to AJISO in learning from fellow NGOs how to improve the means of raising awareness to the society regarding the problems they face by making sure that they realise that their traditions and customs are the problems and adopt better practices.
