Tanzania

Tanzania has experienced significant economic growth over the last decade. Although the poverty rate in the country has declined, the absolute number of poor has not because of the high population growth rate. As a result, children still face many challenges including violence, malnutrition, poor healthcare and education and other basic services.

We are dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. From our start in Tanzania in 1981, we have grown to be one of the largest humanitarian and development organisations in the country, working in 14 out 33 regions across 41 districts.

We seek to contribute to the measurable improvement in the sustained well-being of 15 million girls and boys – especially the most vulnerable.
