Africa Foundation have been working with the community of Gottenburg since 2017. The community has great sense of unity and strong leadership structures, the crime rate in the community is very low. Gottenburg community prioritizes education, their schools are ranked among the best in the region. There are 2 schools in Gottenburg, Manyeleti Primary School and Dayimani High School. There is hardly any employment opportunities in the community, as a result most men of working age migrate to other cities in search for jobs, many households are led by the women and the elderly who are the most vulnerable members of society.
