(1) Walking to school, Kagera

Children in rural Tanzania often face very long walks to and from school, particularly hazardous in the rainy season, which is why supporting hostels is one of our priorities. Learn more about our education priorities here.

(2) Increased yields from irrigation, Kigoma

In much of rural Tanzania farmers can only grow crops during the rainy seasons, so access to irrigation is a game changer, increasing incomes and food security. Read more here.

(3) Biochar, Kigoma

Here farmers are learning how to create biochar from agricultural waste to improve soil health and boost crop yields Learn more about the benefits of biochar here.

(4) Improved water sources in Kagera

Villagers at Kyainoni bring sand and stones to assist the construction of an improved water source for the village. This is the 2nd of 7 installations planned in Kagera to improve the water supply of over 7500 people.

(5) Second chance for young mothers

Tumaini Open School supports young mothers in Tabora region and beyond who have been excluded from education when they became pregnant, to offer them a second chance of education at Tumaini Open School. As they don’t have their own laboratory yet they have to use a nearby school after hours. More information here.

(6) Tree growing club, Kigoma

Local partner MVG has set up environmental clubs in local schools where students learn about climate change and the benefits of trees. Here they are planting avocado trees in their school grounds to boost nutrition, provide shade and help protect the environment. Learn more about this project here.
