What are these?

Tearfund has supported local Christian partners in Tanzania since 1969. We are currently working with seven partners in the country whose main focus is church and community mobilisation. 

Our partners are working to help the following groups: internally displaced people, families affected by HIV, subsistence farmers and pastoralists, orphans and other vulnerable children. These people are being helped through a variety of 
current and planned programmes covering community development, primary healthcare, water and sanitation provision, environmental protection, disaster preparedness and risk reduction, women’s empowerment and HIV care and prevention.

A special emphasis is also being placed on strengthening the Tanzanian church to advocate at local and national levels about issues such as HIV, human rights, climate change, food security, disaster preparedness and improving poor communities’ access to services.

Please pray: 

  • for people living in poverty in Tanzania.
  • for our Tanzanian partners as they seek to help others.
  • for Tanzania: for justice, peace, health and hope for everyone.
