World Monument Fund Church Restoration and Memorial Centre Project

The Anglican Church in Stone Town.

The Anglican Church in Stone Town.

Beginning in late 2013, the ZSTHS will have the chance to partner with the World Monument Fund and the Anglican Diocese of Zanzibar on a major culture and heritage project funded by the European Union.

The project will include the restoration and preservation of the ancient Anglican Church of Stone Town, one of Zanzibar’s important heritage buildings, training of local fundis in sustainable restoration techniques, training of local tour guides on the history and heritage of Stone Town, and the development of an educational and heritage centre about the slave trade and its abolition in Zanzibar.

We will keep you updated on the project as it develops. Thanks to our great partners at the WMF and Anglican Diocese for making this project happen!
