Make An Impact in Tanzania

Causes in Tanzania

World Pix loves working with causes in Tanzania. Our heart fills with joy every time we visit this beautiful country!

Tanzania is an East African country known for its beautiful vast wilderness areas.

These areas include the plains of Serengeti National Park, a safari mecca populated by the “big five” game, Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhino, and Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa’s highest mountain.

Offshore lie the tropical islands of Zanzibar, with Arabic influences, and Mafia, with a marine park home to whale sharks and coral reefs.

Our Efforts in Tanzania

Overview

The level of poverty in Tanzania is very high.Tanzania has made little progress towards reducing extreme hunger and malnutrition. The 2010 Global Hunger Index ranks the situation as “alarming”. 

Children in rural areas suffer substantially higher rates of malnutrition and chronic hunger.

Factors of Poverty

Low rural sector productivity arises mainly from inadequate infrastructure investment. There is limited access to farm inputs, extension services and credit., and Zimbabwe to the northeast.

Other factors for the tremendous poverty are limited technology as well as trade and marketing support. There is a heavy dependence on rain-fed agriculture and natural resources.

Social Problems

Approximately 68 percent of Tanzania's 44.9 million citizens live below the poverty line of $1.25 a day and 16 percent of children under 5 are malnourished.

The most prominent challenges Tanzania faces in poverty reduction are unsustainable harvesting of its natural resources, unchecked cultivation, climate change and water- source encroachment.

Health Problems

In Tanzania, with a population of 45 million, there are several million orphans, many of whose parents have died from AIDS.

Due to a shortage of clean blood supply in Africa, mothers die during child birth at a much higher rate, resulting in many orphaned babies. In Tanzania, babies are abandoned in hospitals, churches, along the road, in forests, bus stations, and many other places.

WorldPix Sponsored Organizations

World Pix has partnered with the following organizations in Tanzania to make a difference in the lives of the people here.

Worldpix is proud to partner with Neema Village in the city of Arusha, Tanzania.

Neema Village

Neema Village began as “Neema House” in 2012 as a rescue center for abandoned, orphaned and at risk babies in Arusha, Tanzania, East Africa.

During that time, more than one hundred eighty-five babies have been rescued, many abandoned babies have now been adopted and others who had lost their mothers during the birth were saved and have now been able to return home to an extended family member.

Neema lives by the idea of creating “Families not Orphanages.” This belief is part of Neema’s core values.

Care For Africa Foundation

The Foundation has already participated in several projects in some of the poorest parts of Africa—Tarime in the Mara Region of Tanzania and in Southern Kenya. Many more projects have been identified in these areas, including sending orphans to school, stocking libraries in schools, and providing running water to local health care facilities.

The Foundation’s key partner in Tanzania is the Tarime Goodwill Foundation, run by Dr. Hudson Winani.
