Wapo Media (Historical Background)

WAPO MEDIA is a media unit, which was established under WAPO MISSION INTERNATIONAL) since 1998. WAPO has a firm traditional belief that every project and program that is designed in Tanzania, should comply with the criterion, which is always used to ensure its success.

The criterion is that we should be fully persuaded in advance that the project will become self -propagating, self-governing and self-sustaining. Based on this belief, WAPO do not want to operate under the pressure of dependence- syndrome. Therefore, in order to make WAPO MEDIA self-propagating, self-governing and self-supporting, in the 2000 year, WAPO MISSION decided to register it under the Business Names (Registration) Ordinance (CAP213) with a registration No: 123655.

Thus, WAPO MEDIA serves as a tool for communication to reach the intended targeted groups in the society. Under the Media Unit, there are two media facilities, that is the Msemakweli Sunday Newspaper, which is in circulation all over the Country, and WAPO RADIO FM reaching about 15 Million people in Dar-es-Salaam and around the Coastal Regions. Both are located at WAPO MISSION premises in Kurasini Temeke Dar-es-Salaam.

Our traditional belief regarding financial support is that every project and program we intend to establish in Tanzania, should comply with the criterion, which we use to ensure its success. Our criterion is that we should be fully persuaded in advance that our project would become self-governing and self-sustaining. Based on this belief, we do not want to operate under the pressure of dependence- syndrome. Yes, we shall look for support at the beginning, but we shall not always depend on day-to-day support from the outside. See more details about the current WAPO Media units:
