mc supports people in coastal regions of Zanzibar and Tanzania in the development and application of sustainable methods for utilising the sea. This includes the reforestation of coral reefs and the training of coral gardeners, the establishment of protected areas or closed seasons, the development of aquaculture projects, etc.

The local population is always involved in the development of our projects from the outset, is trained accordingly and carries out the majority of the work. Cooperation with local authorities, tourism stakeholders and researchers in the field of aquaculture and marine conservation is of critical importance to the success and longevity of the project..

mc is a non-profit organisation founded in 2008 as an association based in Zurich, Switzerland, and registered as an NGO in Zanzibar. It is based in Jambiani on the east coast of Zanzibar. mc is financed by membership fees, donations and project contributions. Strategically, mc is supported by an executive board in Switzerland and an advisory committee in Zanzibar. mc currently employs a managing director, two project managers (one of whom is employed until the end of 2024), four coral farmers and has two boat captains.

Our co-founder and long-standing local managing director is retiring at the end of 2024. We will be looking for a new Managing Director starting Q3 2024.

The funding for the current projects guarantees employment for the next 2-3 years at a workload of 2 days/week. It is the responsibility of the Managing Director with assistance of the Executive Board to acquire new projects and financing by mid-2026 at the latest. We offer a position with a lot of development potential.

The new Managing Director of mc is a doer and creative thinker. He/she is willing to get involved in exciting and varied day-to-day business with a motivated team. She is keen to develop new, innovative projects and seek the necessary funding. She is prepared to commit to a small, expandable project on a long-term basis and on-site.
