World Renew is supporting African Inland Church of Tanzania Diocese of Geita with the first year of a five-year agriculture and livelihoods project in the districts of Chato, Geita, and Geita Town Council.
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 5 years this project aims to increase the food security of over 1,800 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 benefit approximately 10,800 people over the five years.
