IST’s Impact

Social Innovation Sandbox

Social innovation sandbox is a space for experimentation where you learn to fail to succeed

Laudato SI

Laudato Si, a movement at Tangaza University College, was established in 2021 as a response to Pope Francis’ call to action in caring for our shared home, the Earth. It embraces the shared values of Pope Francis and Professor Muhamad Yunus.

Social Business Immersion Series

The series begins with a social enterprise field visit to inspire, empower, and multiply students and beginner social entrepreneurs through exposure to leading social enterprises and engagement in insightful discussions.


A University in a slum. Impossible?

The growth of the IST is seen through its academic programmes together with the local and international collaborations. The growth of IST has witnessed expansion of its wings to offer learning services not only in Tangaza, but also in the slums too (University Mtaani, through a unique pedagogy of theory and action and a methodology informed by the Pastoral cycle).
