The projects funded by TDT in 2019-20 fall into five main groups, linked to agriculture, clean water, employment and women’s livelihoods, education, and community. Many of the projects have multiple benefits within the communities they serve, and contribute to the growth of the local economy in these marginalised communities in more than one way.
An important by-product of TDT’s work is the development of leadership skills within rural communities, helping them to become self-sufficient. We try to raise the aspirations of younger Tanzanians, particularly girls, by providing access to life-changing opportunities. And we look for sustainability and continuity in all of our projects, using technology that is within the maintenance capabilities of the recipients.
