COVID 19 ( Corona Virus )
Project applications and funding:
During the COVID 19 (Corona Virus) emergency TDT is not accepting project applications until the situation eases.
Due to the drop in exchange rates we will also not be sending funds to projects recently approved at our February meeting until the rates for GB pounds to Tanzania shillings improves, and until project beneficiaries are in a position to be able to receive funds and manage project implementation.
We very much hope that this very serious situation improves and we will aim to restore our normal project work as soon as possible.
We thank you for your understanding.
All our UK team send our very good wishes to our friends and colleagues in Tanzania and hope that you will stay well and safe during this very difficult time.

In addition to donating to Tanzania Development Trust’s general work, you can help in the following specific ‘campaigns’, each of which has its own dedicated fund raising page:
Building hostels for girls in secondary schools is an essential tool in combatting issues that prevent many girls from completing secondary education. At an individual level, this enhances girls’ life opportunities, And it is good for Tanzania as a whole, since educating girls benefits society more broadly.
DONATE to help us give more girls a safe place to live and study

Bringing clean water to Kigoma
Help bring clean water to villages, transforming lives of villagers who carry water very long distances, wasting hours every day, and combatting health problems associated with often having to take water from muddy ponds shared with animals.
Tanzania Development Trust’s local rep in Kigoma, Benedicto Hosea and his team, has successfully hand drilled over 15 boreholes and constructed simple rope pumps that can easily be repaired by the villagers. You can help extend this low-cost, effective solution to more villages:
