Our current project in Lake Zone, Tanzania


Sewing machines arrive in Kiabakari. Smiling faces all round

We are working with SIDO to deliver practical training, business support and access to affordable tools and equipment to all the artisan groups within the two rural villages of Kiabakiri and Namagondo.

SIDO is our long-standing partner in Tanzania: the Small Industries Development Organisation
The two villages have been selected jointly by ourselves and SIDO. They both have around 10,000 population, primary and secondary schools, and each has around 20 working groups with no previous support from us.

The groups have now been assessed for practical assistance and training needs, and tool kits and sewing machines have been received. Training has taken place, and we are looking forward to a re-assessment of the artisan situation in the villages next January.
