Photographs for Tremendous 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. They 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

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. Low rural sector productivity arises mainly from inadequate infrastructure investment; limited access to farm inputs, extension services and credit; limited technology as well as trade and marketing support; and heavy dependence on rain-fed agriculture and natural resources.

Tanzania - 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 encroachmentTanzania facts:
  • In Tanzania, with a population of 45 million, there are several million orphans, many of whose parents have died from AIDS.
  • Most orphanages will not accept babies because they are too expensive to care for and require too many workers.
  • 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.
  • To adopt a child in Tanzania you must live in the country 3 years, be married, and be at least 25 years old, which basically stops out of country adoptions.
