IDDI HASSAN ALI

ZAVECO Chairman

Mr. Hassan-Ali is the director of all operations for ZAVECO. He has worked in the volunteer field since 2009. 

In 2017 he created ZAVECO in order to address the environmental destruction ravaging Zanzibar’s mangrove forests. 

“The environment is very important for the whole world. I want to protect Zanzibar Island for the future generations in the face of environmental degradation, climate change, and sea level rise. I wish to find solutions for local communities, through education so that communities can look towards themselves to provide solutions without relying on the government. Volunteers can help create these solutions with local communities, building a more sustainaible future.
