Challenge

Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world, with per capita income of $280 USD and about half of the population living below the poverty line. The land in Babati, was once a forested sanctuary for wildlife and people. But in the past 50 years, unsustainable farming practices and the increasing demand for charcoal for cooking have degraded most of the region's forests. The result is severe erosion, depleted water basins, and dry rivers.

Solution

As TAJPI realize Earth's fragility and the need to restore and protect Earth's ecological integrity; to reverse that damage, it will support 8,000 students from 6 secondary schools in Babati Districts to establish their own tree woodlots with emphasis on ecological conversion with a view to achieving self-sufficiency in firewood supply, improve on nutrition and make schools livable places adequate for study meanwhile make the difference in reversing environmental degradation in Tanzania.

Long-Term Impact

The project integrates solutions to socio-environmental challenges and will: I) give students the opportunity to receive environmental and ecological conversion education that would not otherwise be available to them II) when some trees start fruiting, students will gain nutritional values from the fruits III) environmental Clubs will be established in each school whose members will be taught on how to nurture seedlings and planted trees IV) environment shall be conserved in the long run
