Emerson Zanzibar CARES

Emerson Zanzibar and the community

Staff and management of Emerson Zanzibar have supported the charity Masks for Life Zanzibar with distributing face masks and providing training on how to use them in the community; from schools, to the elderly homes, and from recovery houses for people recovering from drug addiction to the voluntary community security groups. 

Emerson Zanzibar continues to support the art and music sector in Zanzibar, by organising regular art exhibitions and music performances in the Secret Garden. With the open air setting, allowing social distancing between tables, the music performances take place giving the musicians a stage again in Zanzibar.
