February 2023

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.

(4) Playing catch at Mdughyu Primary

As part of the integrated village  development project at Mdughuyu we will be  developing the primary school. Currently  they have only  2 completed classrooms. That  doesn’t stop them enjoying playing with the  football we brought.

(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.
