Supporting the work of TDT
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:
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:

Income generating projects
Over the years we have seen first-hand how relatively small amounts of money, invested well, can transform the lives of women living in extreme poverty, by allowing them to start small village businesses. This is particularly true when coupled with appropriate business training and ongoing coaching by our dedicated local reps. Success not only transforms the income of the women and their families, it also has a huge impact on their confidence and status.

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.
