Ibwera Community, Tanzania

Three years of low rainfall in Ibwera has decreased the food supply and children are lacking adequate nutrition. We’ve been partnering with them since 2007.

We’re currently improving the productivity of crops to increase income, resilience and family nutrition so that farmers are not as impacted by our changing climate. We are equipping families with the skills they need to have sufficient food for a healthy and growing family.

We have already achieved great things in the Ibwera community by helping children receive an education and supporting parents to increase their income.

We’re working with the people of Ibwera to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Ibwera for over 10 years and now we’re working on some final projects to ensure the hard work will last for generations to come. We are supporting Ibwera to grow in leadership, knowledge and skills so they can take over all the projects we have worked on together and are equipped to develop new initiatives to sustain a community where children can thrive. 

We plan for our partnership to continue until 2019 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
