AREPEB is a national non-profit making organization founded as an initiative of young graduates who want to bring about social transformation in Tanzania by strengthening capacity of local communities and stakeholders in the area of Peace, Conflict Transformation, Poverty Eradication and Community Empowerment, and in addressing issues relating to Violent Extremism.
The idea of establishing an NGO to address issues of peace, conflict resolution, violent extremism and poverty eradication was mooted out by Moses Julius Muganga back in the year 2012 when he was a student of Kampala International University (KIU)-Dar-Es-Salaam Campus. He noted out that since 2012 the country has been experiencing serious and organized crimes unprecedented before such as killings of police officers at police posts and check points/roadblocks and robbing firearms; bank robbery; highway robbery; as well as house robbery. Having noted such dramatic increase in the level of crimes, Moses Julius Muganga came up with an idea of an institution that could contribute the government’s efforts in maintaining peace and security as well as improving people’s livelihood.
Later, he decided to involve his fellow students and few lecturers who bought in the idea. It was a team of 17 people. Thereafter, a series of follow up consultative meetings were held on the agenda involving fellow students, lecturers, lawyers from Good Governance
and Human Rights Commission he came up with organization’s title, logo and constitution. Furthermore, the meeting outlined the NGO’s Strategic Direction, Institutional Framework and Organizational and above all it elected office bearers and resolved that Handeni as its headquarters.
In June, 2014 the draft constitution was finalized, and the AREPEB was registered in December, 2014.
It was agreed that AREPEB will promote amongst its activities as it strengthens the capacity of local communities and stakeholders through activities such as Peace building, Conflict Transformation, Prevention of Violent Extremism and Poverty Eradication.
AREPEB is therefore a result of a series of consultative processes over a short period of time spearheaded and supported by a few inspired individuals.
