March 2013 Report

Habari zenu? We are writing with a quick update about our project.  Thank you so much for supporting the important need to conserve Tanzania's forests. No matter what you've donated to this project, every dollar counts and is put to work. There has been an amazing amount of support for this project and we can't thank you enough. We are on our way to making a sustainable impact and not only conserving Tanzania's forests, but also improving the stability and livelihood of the people depending on them.

We are continuing to focus our efforts on the REDD project and on the five-year sustainable charcoal project aimed at promoting more sustainable charcoal production from community managed woodlots. This project operates in the Kilosa District, and will improve climate change adaptation and mitigation, enhanced environmental sustainability and leveraged returns on biomass resources, delivering sustainable development to Tanzania and its people.

You can also read up on TFCG program highlights, including encouraging youth engagement in environmental issues, land use planning, and the REDD pilot project. Funds raised from this GlobalGiving project go directly to the field to support these and other critical conservation projects. 

If you live in or near NYC, we would love for you to join us at our 22nd annual Artists for Africa Benefit this April 23rd at The Bowery Hotel, where you can learn even more about our mission to support grassroots community development and conservation projects in Tanzania. We will be celebrating the country of Norway, by honoring them with our New Species Award for the integral role they've played within our REDD project this year.  More details about this special event for our cause can be found here

Asante Sana!
