Build a Clinic in Kikomolela Village,Tanzania
 
This project will construct a health clinic in rural Tanzania to serve a village of 2,475 people, of which one-third are children. There are currently no health facilities in this village, and the community must walk up to 7 kilometers for basic health services. The government has agreed to provide a healthcare worker, basic medicines, and mosquito nets once the clinic is built. Having access to a clinic will significantly decrease deaths from malaria and other waterborne diseases. project reportread updates from the field
Beekeeping to Conserve Tanzania's Rainforest
 
This project will support a beekeeping project for 30 men and women in Kanga Village in Tanzania's South Ngurus Mountains. The aim of this project is to enhance the conservation of the local forest and improve the livelihoods of community members (through the sale of honey at local markets). The group currently has 20 beehives and has had two successful harvests, but the project requires more beehives, equipment, and training in order to reach its full potential. project reportread updates from the field
