Empowering women in Zanzibar: Sea sponge farming offers hope and prosperity

In the face of rising ocean temperatures, women in Zanzibar are finding new hope and economic stability through sea sponge farming. Previously engaged in seaweed farming, these resilient women transitioned to cultivating climate-resilient sea sponges, which are better adapted to warmer waters.

The initiative, supported by Marine Cultures, not only provides a lifeline to these single mothers and divorced women but also benefits the environment by filtering pollutants and contributing to the fight against climate change. Sea sponge farming is transforming lives and promoting gender equality, offering a brighter future for these inspiring women in Zanzibar.
