Deploy and Nurturing Gallery abbreviated as (DNG) was dully established and registered in Tanzania as a national NGO under the NGOs Act Cap 56 (R.E 2002 of the Laws of Tanzania) with registration No. 00NGO/R/1418. It is not for profit, non-partisan but a membership organisation working under the rights-based principles and approaches (transparency, participation, and accountability) that strives to improve the lives of the most vulnerable and marginalised communities (rural and the urban poor) by empowering women, youth, children and person living with disabilities.
DNG was originally founded by five enthusiastic young activist members (3 females and 2 males) with a shared vision and synergistic efforts to stimulate solution-based local initiatives based on equality and socio-economic justice. The organisation has now expanded its membership base to 11. The organization is headed by the Board of Directors with offices currently based in Arusha. In essence, the founding members from the initial Board of Directors are DNGs operating in mainland Tanzania. In the meantime, DNG’s main operational focus is the four regions of Tanzania’s northern zone including Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Manyara, and Tanga.
Ideally, the founder envisages the potentiality of joining efforts together with the essence of bringing tangible changes to the community’s needs. The founder of the organisation Mr. Nhojo Allan Kushoka holds a Master of Arts in Rural Development from the Sokoine University of Agriculture. He got an idea about mobilising talented youths and focusing on their community's problems and challenging themselves by coming up with innovative and sustainable solutions to the community's existing problems. Most of the members are graduates professionally like Teachers, accountants, and social practitioners.
This is a reason why DNG comes into existence to complement government efforts to empower the community. The organisation's essence is including address the existing problems or notions among the community that they have to wait for the government to do all of their needs. Through bringing them together and educate the purpose of self-starting self-initiatives that needed to be carried out to provide solutions to their own problems in all aspects of socially, economically, environmentally. Those solutions will be sustainable by making them interactive to integrate into all community aspects and stakeholders within and outside their community.
