Another month, another photo competition for our amazing local Tanzanian representatives who have been sending photos of their projects to us throughout the month! Let us know what you think via social media by tagging us and using the hashtag #TDTPhotoComp!
(1) Water at Mkonona
Mkonona school which TDT helped fund as part of the Eucanaid village development project at Marumba, now have their own water from 120 metres deep borehole drilled on their land. Previously they had to make a 4 hour journey to get water from an open source. It will be so useful for the hostel building now also going up, and as an income generator selling water to the village. Read more about Marumba here.
(2) Revolving Goat project, Kagera
These women look very happy to have received their goats! This project aims to increase financial security and support social empowerment of vulnerable women in Muleba District through a revolving goat scheme. Owning livestock mean women will be more financially secure as goats can be sold to pay for food, healthcare, clothing, school fees for their children, or housing improvements.
The goats provide insurance and will allow them to respond to unexpected changes in their circumstances. Kids are passed on to other women so this is a sustainable, growing project. Read more about our goat projects here.
(3) Water pipes for Tunamkumbuka School
These workmen are busy building pipes to bring water from a spring 1 km away to Tunamkumbuka School. This is particularly vital for the students in the hostel. Read more about Tunamkumbuka here.
(5) Water at Migoti School, Kasulu
These students previously had to carry water from a dirty stream 2km away, but now they have water on site thanks to a low cost method of drilling for water perfected by our local rep in Kigoma, Benedicto Hosea, read more about this project here.
(6) Watering seedlings in Zeze
Students in Kitibitibi primary school in Zeze are taking great care of the seedlings they have planted as part of the project funded by Big Green Give last year. Read more about this project here.
