Launch of the Iringa Boma – Regional Museum and Cultural Center

In 2014, fahari yetu started the extensive renovation of the German Boma, which had been recently vacated by the District Commissioner’s office.  One of the key objectives of the program is to preserve and foster cultural awareness, pride, exchange and participation through public accessibility and display.
