Summary

Tanzanian communities in Iguguno and Tumili have experienced an incredibly dry year & the rainy season has not started on time. The changing climate has forced local farmers to purchase their water, which places an enormous burden on them as impoverished subsistence farmers. These farmers can not afford to cover the basic costs to water their tree nurseries to grow a better future. With your help, 488 families will stay on track to grow resilient Forest Gardens & continue to change their lives.
