Over one-third of all households in Tanzania live in poverty, on $1.00 a day or less with children and rural populations disproportionately affected by this hardship. As the economy relies primarily on agriculture, approximately 75% of the population lives in rural areas, often without access to basic infrastructure or clean water. According to UNICEF in Tanzania, “Malnutrition — most prevalent in young children from the poorest or rural households — is the single biggest contributor to child mortality, with malaria, anemia, pneumonia, diarrhea, HIV, and AIDS also being key causes.” Access to education remains limited for children in our partner communities. The abolition of primary school fees has increased primary school attendance, but there has been no corresponding increase in teachers, infrastructure, or resources.
