World Renew is supporting African Inland Church of Tanzania Mara and Ukerewe Diocese with the first year of a five-year agriculture and livelihoods project in Butiama, Serengeti and Bunda districts.
Food insecurity is a complex and widespread issue amongst Tanzanians, particularly in rural communities where many households only have enough food for five months of the year.
Over the next five years, this project aims to increase the food security of over 3,000 participating households through the introduction and promotion of conservation agriculture. The goal is to sustainably increase crop production in challenging climatic areas suffering from dry and erratic weather patterns.
Additionally, the project will provide marketing and nutrition trainings, establish and strengthen village savings and loan groups and engage with government officers to strengthen extension services.
The project is expected to reach over 18,000 people in the next five years.
