The program

eu can aid! and Tanzania Development Trust (TDT) – a London based Charitable Trust – have developed a joint program to support Marumba  villagers in  setting  a three years integrated program so to reach self-sufficiency and a better quality of life.

The program has started in September 2015 to end in September 2018, and involves eradication of extreme hunger and poverty, primary education, gender equality, reduction of child mortality, maternal health, environmental sustainability and income generating activities.

This program, proposed by the people at Marumba Village, has the full participation of the United Republic of Tanzania through its local authority; it involves the local community participation under the monitoring of the local project’s officers from TDT.

In 2015, we are installing:

  1. Solar power at the dispensary
  2. Construction of classrooms in the primary school
  3. Installation of a borehole and water tank

 

The location and the program’s rationale

Marumba village is one of the most vulnerable villages in Nanyumbu District, Tanzania, due to its remoteness and to the nature of the geographical location. Marumba is located at the border of Tanzania and Mozambique southwest of the Indian Ocean

Most of the people are dependent on agriculture as the source of food, employment and other basic needs like shelter, education, clothes and transport.

Per capita income of most Marumba villagers (96%) is $1 per day.

Villagers have hardly access to clean water and energy, school classes are lacking, and a very low families’ income does not suffice to assure local population’s self-sufficiency.
