Tanzania Development Trust

The Trust Deed of 1975 says "The objects of the Trust shall be to relieve poverty and sickness among the people of Tanzania by means of the development of education, health and other social services, the improvement of water supplies and other communal facilities and the promotion of self- help activities." Interpreting the Trust Deed for the needs of the 21st Century we add: "In making grants, the Trust tries to promote equal opportunities and projects which improve the environment".
No FGM! Safe House and Training Centre, Tanzania
 
HURRAH, GLOBAL GIVERS WE'VE DONE IT! This project has been raising money to build a Dining Room, Kitchen and Perimeter Fence at the Safe House for Girls escaping FGM. We have done that in 9 months, and the buildings are going up fast. Now we are switching attention to helping provide high quality certificated courses in the Safe House's Vocational Training Centre. Ignore the statement that we have raised all the money! We are beginning again! project reportread updates from the field
Transforming Tanzanian schools with Technology
 
This project helps rural government secondary schools in the poorest areas of Tanzania access educational resources via technology. These schools have few books, a shortage of teachers, particularly in maths and science and often no electricity. Students walk for hours to get to school, to try and fulfill their dream to become tomorrows doctors and teachers. Yet without a good maths and science education they will not succeed. This project provides a cost efficient means of helping them. project reportread updates from the field
Crowdsourced Mapping to Prevent FGM in Tanzania
 
This is a volunteer run project to map rural Tanzania into Openstreetmap - an open source map available to everyone for navigation, planning, and monitoring of services. It will add every school, clinic, village, road and water point using a combination of satellite images, open government data and training locals on the ground with mobile apps. We are starting with the area where girls are at risk of FGM so that advocacy staff know where the villages are and so can reach the girls at risk.
Clinic for 10,000 in Tanzania's hidden valley
 
Matongo valley lies between two ranges of high hills in Northern Tanzania. The nearest clinic is 15 km away by steep paths over the hills- not good for a pregnant mother. The only road in is a cart track. Yet in scattered hamlets, 10,000 people live, needing health care: their own clinic. Our Trust has built a staff house and a bore hole. By their own efforts the Matongo people have built the clinic to lintel height, but they have run out of money to complete it. With your help they can do it.
Support Tanzania Earthquake Relief
 
An Earthquake measuring 5.7 on the Richter Scale struck Bukoba area in NW Tanzania, on 10th September 2016. 17 people died and over 1200 houses, hospitals, schools and churches were reduced to rubble, including projects we have been supporting for many years. Many roads have also been destroyed. For a country as poor as Tanzania it is a major blow and people desperately need your help now. project reportread updates from the field
