Morogoro Women Training Centre (MWTC) is one of the Christian Council of Tanzania’s (CCT) Unit. MWTC has been in place since 1979, to empower women from member churches, to acquire knowledge and skills to participate effectively in the life of the church, family and the community at large. Empowerment engages women in both social-economic teachings. In line with conducting trainings which are donor-funded programmes, the centre conducts income-generating activities like accommodation services (hospitality), catering services, and conference hall services.

From this inception, it is high time for MWTC to acquire current and advanced features of running the centre, to meet its mission and vision.
