KCR FM 93.3We are delighted to bring to your notice that KADETFU has finally achieved its long cherished ambition and established a community radio station, the first of its kind in Kagera Region.  It is now ready on air waiting for the official launching after fulfilling all needed requirements by the Regulatory Authority.

As we said in our last publications, Radio is a very useful tool with great impact to the society. Radio disseminates information to all people, literate and illiterate alike, urban and rural population, surrounding and remote areas where it is difficult to be reached due to infrastructure limitations; many people get information at the same time and such service can easily be afforded by most families i.e. most of the families can afford to buy a small radio set.

Dear Colleagues and Partners,

According to the new law (the NGO act 2004), the exisiting organisations have to apply for the Certificate of Compliance (CoC). I am glad to inform you that the Government has granted us a Certificate of Compliance no. 1596 of 13th March 2006 and has consented us to operate in the whole of Tanzania mainland. However, due to that effect, the title of ouir organisation has changed a bit with exclusion of the word "Trust", but the acronym remains the same i.e. "KADETFU".

Therefore the New name of  the Organisation is "KAGERA DEVELOPMENT AND CREDIT REVOLVING FUND" in short "KADETFU". We are glad to obtain the certificate of compliance  but regrets for any inconvenience that might be caused by these changes.

With kind regards

Yusto P. Muchuruza

KADETFU has so far achieved a track of achievements which among others include the following:-

1. KADETFU is a winner of the “LAKE VICTORIA ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD 2006“which demonstrates good performance as recognized by the UNHABITAT and LARVLAC for her outstanding contribution to the conservation of Lake Victoria and advocacy for Fishers.

2. KADETFU was once identified as a stronger organization in the region with high reputation and credibility. It has therefore been tasked by some donors and the Government to be a puller organization to pull up and build capacities of other local NGOs/CBOs in the Region.

Vision Statement

We envisage a friendly environment and a healthy, prosperous, and just society that is committed to solution of its problems independently and sustainably.

Mission Statement
