USADF Extends support for Biogas in Tanzania
USADF Extends support for Biogas in Tanzania

Along with the wonderful support we are receiving from our GlobalGiving donors, we are glad to report a generous grant from United States Africa Development Foundation (USADF) to boost our biogas project in rural Tanzania. TAHUDE is promised $ 124 k to benefit hundreds of households in Northen Tanzania from 2017 - 2020. USADF was convinced to extend its support after witnessing the benefit that was evidently gained by the biogas beneficiaries.  USADF officials physically visited the beneficiaries and were convinced that it is a worthwhile project to continue receiving support from the People of America through USADF - we are so grateful on this.

As TAHUDE Staff, we continue to extend our gratitude to GlobalGiving and its generous supporters for helping us built our case - that biogas is a worthwhile project that can reduced human pain, particularly to mothers and girls who cook by using firewood. In our previous report (please consider our website http://gongalimodel.com/Biogas.html) we have given some statistics on 89 beneficiaries and the IMPACT to the environment.

We expect extended generous support from our partners on GlobalGiving in 2018, and we promise to update you from time to time. Please kindly feel free to share our success story with all your partners, family and friends. And please kindly drop-by our biogas project when you visit Tanzania, at anytime of your convenience.

ASANTENI SANA!

TAHUDE - Gongali Biogas Project and trees planting

Many exciting things are happening with our Biogas Project in this quarter, along with the successful completion of the Biogas Loan Project supported by the United States African Development Foundation (USADF). USADF was very impressed to learn the IMPACT we made with the first grant they provided to TAHUDE Foundation. With this grant, TAHUDE was able to reach 534 people with green energy (environmentally friendly biogas from cow-dung).

USADF is now planning to extend its support probably from Oct / Nov 2017. With this, TAHUDE will touch another hundreds of lives in underserved communities in Tanzania. The project, along with avoiding carbon dioxide emission, also rejuvenate soil by using the organic fertilizer which is the waste product from the biogas system. TAHUDE also gave 8,000 trees to local people in the villages where the biogas project is being implemented.

We are grateful to the GlobalGiving supporters, though they were not many this time. I am sure our impressive success story with this USADF support will inspire many other donors to join our effort. The need is big because about 94% of Tanzanian population still depends on firewood for cooking. This should NOT be tolerated  in this 21st Century (cutting trees for cooking!? NO!).

THANKS FOR CONSIDERING OUR PLEA FOR THIS PROJECT THAT BENEFIT EVERYONE ON EARTH (if our local people stop cutting trees then everyone on earth will benefit the free and fresh oxygen from trees)

USA Students Visiting Biogas Customers in Tanzania
USA Students Visiting Biogas Customers in Tanzania

This quarter is so unique to TAHUDE Foundation and the whole Gongali Community. We are glad that our project is attracting local and international attention. The government leaders formerly invited our Biogas project to be one of the exhibitors in National Health and Environment Day on 2nd June 2017. It was a splendid event.

Moreover, we received more than 100 foreign visitors who wanted to visited our project. The attached photos shows university students from USA visiting one of our customers in Gongali village - Tanzania. They were so impressed by our innovation.

These connections are contributing to our project publicity and we have been receiving donations from Anonymous (we respect the privacy of our customers who did not reveal their names) - but some donors also revealed their names. To all of them - along with the GlobalGiving - we say THANK YOU SO MUCH!

At present we have already built 89 biogas systems to our customers by June 2017. With your timely support we will be able to reach our target of 100 households before the end of 2017 - then we can cover more customers and scale-up this initiative to other regions in Tanzania and across Sub-Sharan Africa. The need is bigger than our financial capacity. For details about our project and how it benefit our underserved community, particularly women and girls (pain of looking for firewood for cooking, painful smoke when cooking with trees, eyes problem, etc), please contact us via hilonga@gmail.com.

IMPACT of 89 Biodigesters built by TAHUDE/Gongali
IMPACT of 89 Biodigesters built by TAHUDE/Gongali

Highlight:

1. IMPACT of the 89 Biodigesters

2. Tsh.175,000 as the government incentive to absorb loan risks

This quarter TAHUDE celebrates for being recognized and selected for incentive to absorb its biogas loan risks. The government of Tanzania through Tanzania Domestic Biogas Program (TDBP) gives TAHUDE Tsh.175,000 per every biogas loan. This fund is given to absorb unforeseen risks of unexpected defaulters

With this incentive, we can now move forward with confidence, even among the most poor community members. Now they are given an extension of up to 2 years for their loan repayment.

We would have not easily attracted the government attention to our project if we did not receive enough support from you and your colleagues who are helping us through TDBP.

With 89 biodigesters it built, TAHUDE is now the second large biogas promoter in Tanzania. Please consider a table on statistics on IMPACT. See the tons of trees saved, carbon dioxide emissions protected, and the trees planted. Women and girls are particularly grateful because the pain of collecting firewood for about 2 hours every day is GONE!

Your continue support is highly valued and we promise to continue making positive IMPACT for the environment, health, and people. We have created jobs for 15 biogas technicians, sales to the materials suppliers, and incentive to biogas promoters.

ASANTE SANA!

20th Nov. 2016 will continue to ring in people ears in Karatu - Arusha for many many years. It was a special day dedicated to biogas promotion, along with other appropriate technologies developed at Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology and disseminated by Gongali Model and TAHUDE Foundation.

The government leaders were so proud of the biogas project and they publicly declared their relentless support for the project.  By Sept 2016 TAHUDE Foundation has already built 90 biodigesters that serve more than 500 people. These digesters have served 41 Hectors of trees that would have been cut for firewood and more than 5,000 tons of organic fertilizer to boost crop production. The environmental benefits for climate change mitigation is also enormous because each biodiger stops 4 tons of carbondioxide that would have been emitted to destroy ozone and/or increase global warming.

We are so humbled by the commitment shown by the government leaders in Karatu District and Arusha Region on 20th Nov. 2016. This has paved doors for our biogas project to penetrate to every household. There are about 9 million households in Tanzania and more than 80% are in rural areas where almost everyone has got cows. Only two cows are enough to run the biodigester that can give enough gas for cooking for the whole family of up to six people - three meals a day; and 60 tons of organic fertilizer per year to increase the crop production.

We are determined to scale-up our project in 2017. We anticipate your relentless support through GlobalGiving and its partners. This is a win-win project because environmental degradation or let say global warming does not respect country boarders - it affect all every living creature on earth. So it is our joint responsibility to save our world for the threats of climate change.

WE ARE HERE TO PARTNER WITH YOU!

THANKS FOR YOUR RELENTLESS SUPPORT!
