The magazine Umeme is a self-organized project on a solely voluntary basis. Umeme is the Swahili translation of "energy". Our magazine focusses on: People. Perspective. Tanzania. Based on our personal experience we are sharing stories and information about Tanzania, about people in Tanzania and Germany, the work of DTP and FUGE, about intercultural collaboration and understanding as well as about renewable energies. The authors and editors are primarily former participants of the DTP volunteer-programmes.

Digitally, Umeme can be accessed by everyone on the homepage All members of DTP receive the printed edition of Umeme. Umeme is financed through external subsidies. It is printed on recycled paper (awarded the Blue Angel eco-label) and only using colours based on renewable raw materials.
