29th  TO 31st  OCTOBER, 2014


 The role of any university besides teaching is to involve itself in community service and innovative research which will yield new knowledge that is key in addressing community problems and challenges.  Looking at our country and many other countries in East Africa and beyond, there are many social, political and economic challenges which need immediate solutions.  For example Tanzania in her Vision 2025 focuses on five important areas of concern namely: high quality livelihood; peace, stability and unity; good governance; a well educated and learning society and finally a strong and competitive economy. After more than ten years of the implementation of Vision 2025, one wonders whether the life of a Tanzanian is improving.  Similar trends are also found in other East African Countries and beyond. 

Mwenge University College of Education (MWUCE)  as one of the stakeholders  in the  East African Community, is interested in bringing various scholars, academicians, economists, activists and many others in a conference to explore the socio- economic challenges to development and their possible solutions for East Africa.
