Across Tanzania, a lack of access to basic services like education and healthcare, and high rates of HIV, means that many of Tanzania’s population live in poverty. Despite some economic growth, 28 percent of people there live on less than one pound per day.
In the Geita region of Tanzania, African Inland Church Tanzania (AICT) is working to change this. In everything they do, AICT aim to transform lives by empowering people to lift themselves out of poverty. Their work includes partnering with local schools to help provide higher levels of education, running health and hygiene training in schools and villages, and supporting those living with HIV. Alongside their other projects they have also built wells, which are maintained by local churches in each village, to provide sustainable access to clean water for local people.
Two weeks living and learning alongside AICT will give you the opportunity to take part in their work, sharing God’s love in practical ways and seeing lives transformed.
