Mama Gladness O. Pallangyo is the heart and soul of our organization. Her deep love to the people of Meru District and her dedication for the preservation of the environment inspired her to take a chance in tourism and link foreign people to the local community.
She started her career as a farmer evolving to a farming specialist and teacher in primary school. Since 1990’s tourism developed in Tanzania and first volunteers came to the country. Through exchange of thoughts and ideas Mama Gladness was inspired to found a cultural tourism program. It took many years of efforts and setbacks until in 2004 Tengeru`s Cultural Tourism Programme was finally established.
Now Mama Gladness is fondly taking care of tourists, volunteers and the people in the community, developing new projects and ideas steadily. She is one of the shining examples of women empowerment and cordiality, which will also impress you.
Tengeru cultural tourism now has award for being the best cultural Tourism in Africa 2015 because of giving back to the community over 65%of its income from Tourists income.
