This a big milestone to Community Tourism because yet again, we will have an opportunity to promote it as a form of getting local communities involved in sustainable tourism income earning ventures.

Zinduka is a Swahili word which literary translates to a re-awakening of consciousness. Zinduka Festival is a forum for re-awakening the consciousness of the people to engage in the process of East African integration and Pan-Africanism through common struggles for socioeconomic and political liberation. It offers East African citizens from all walks of life, and organizations from diverse sectors, an opportunity to celebrate the vibrant East African diversities; as well as share our successes and challenges as we pursue the region’s economic and political liberation.

The inaugural Zinduka Festival was held between May 30 and June 1, 2013 in Arusha, Tanzania. The rationale for choosing Arusha as the venue is because it hosts the secretariat of the East African Community, and harbors numerous historical memories in the efforts of integration and the spirit of Pan-Africanism.

UCOTA takes this opportunity to invite you participate in this forum which will be a landmark in East Africa.
