Tanzanian Leaders DETERMINED to boost Biogas Progr

Government Leaders gave AMAZING support

20th Nov. 2016 will continue to ring in people ears in Karatu - Arusha for many many years. It was a special day dedicated to biogas promotion, along with other appropriate technologies developed at Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology and disseminated by Gongali Model and TAHUDE Foundation.

The government leaders were so proud of the biogas project and they publicly declared their relentless support for the project.  By Sept 2016 TAHUDE Foundation has already built 90 biodigesters that serve more than 500 people. These digesters have served 41 Hectors of trees that would have been cut for firewood and more than 5,000 tons of organic fertilizer to boost crop production. The environmental benefits for climate change mitigation is also enormous because each biodiger stops 4 tons of carbondioxide that would have been emitted to destroy ozone and/or increase global warming.

We are so humbled by the commitment shown by the government leaders in Karatu District and Arusha Region on 20th Nov. 2016. This has paved doors for our biogas project to penetrate to every household. There are about 9 million households in Tanzania and more than 80% are in rural areas where almost everyone has got cows. Only two cows are enough to run the biodigester that can give enough gas for cooking for the whole family of up to six people - three meals a day; and 60 tons of organic fertilizer per year to increase the crop production.

We are determined to scale-up our project in 2017. We anticipate your relentless support through GlobalGiving and its partners. This is a win-win project because environmental degradation or let say global warming does not respect country boarders - it affect all every living creature on earth. So it is our joint responsibility to save our world for the threats of climate change.

WE ARE HERE TO PARTNER WITH YOU!

THANKS FOR YOUR RELENTLESS SUPPORT!

We are so excited that at last we have TURNED OFF the Kerosene Lamps in Karatu District on 20th Nov. 2016. This was a ground-breaking event attended by thousands of people and covered by about 10 Journalists from National TVs like TBC, ITV, Star TV, Radios, Magazine, etc.

Before the public address, students from 6 different schools made demonstrations/parade throughout Karatu Town to proclaim the celebration of TURNING OFF the Kerosene Lamps in Karatu District. This was a symbolic event benchmarking the end of OLD TECHNOLOGY of using Kerosene and BEGINNING of new era of using solar lanterns in Karatu District.

In total we have reached 1,750 school children in Karatu. Our plan is to IMPACT 10,000 children within 2017. The future of this project is brighter with serious commitment from various GlobalGiving donors like the lady in London (we keep her anonymous) who contributed up to GBP 1,000 in single donation that was also matched by 50% bonus from GlobalGiving. In fact we raised more than GBP 13,000 in single fund-raising season of few weeks that ended in Oct 2016.

With time, we are witnessing serious engagement of our partners and supporters world-wide. We are convinced for sure that the TIME HAS COME to end kerosene poisoning in rural Africa. Solar lanterns are increasing the convenience to students and academic improvement.

THANKS for your IMPACT. Please let us know how you would like to be involved at higher level, as you wish.

We are open-minded to partner with you - the need is so big with more than 20 million kids living in rural Tanzania. They all need light for study.

THANKS FOR YOUR RELENTLESS SUPPORT

TAHUDE Foundation and its sister organization, Gongali Model were so proud to conduct a ground-breaking event in Karatu Dirstrict, Arusha region - Tanzania on 20th Nov. 2016. It was such as splendid event honored by the Arusha Regional Commissioner (through his representative) and covered by about 10 Journalists from National TVs like TBC, ITV, Star TV, Radios, Magazines, etc.

About 3,000 people were reached through this event. Attached, please see some pictures and videos of the event. We used the event to celebrate the success stories from our beneficiaries - about 8,000 people.

We are indebted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all our partners including GlobalGiving and its generous donors. The impact was very obvious and many people were excited by our humble commitment to serve our under-served communities in Rural Tanzania.

By now we have established 150 water stations run by local entrepreneurs who, beside giving the service of clean and safe water, they are also economically benefiting a lot. For example, Ms. Benadeta who has a water station at Mount Meru Hospital earns up to GBP 3 per day as her net profit. This lady had no job BUT now she is self-employed through our Nanofilter water station. She is so grateful!

THANKS for your relentless support as we make IMPACT to people like Benadeta and many others. We want to establish 1,000 water stations within 2017. This is equivalent to creating job opportunities to 1,000 local entrepreneurs who will be providing safe and clean water to 100,000 people every day.

Please kindly let us know how you would like to be engaged, as you wish.

Meanwhile, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your RELENTLESS SUPPORT.
