  • Need


    The future for most young people in Tanzania is not in subsistence farming and they want to use their natural enterprise talents the best way they can in a sustainable way.


    The Diocese owns a plot of land on which they would like to build a new Vocational Training Centre for young people to train in mechanised farming, construction, knitting, dressmaking, sustainable agriculture - growing crops without fertiliser, and animal husbandry.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Help the Diocese with essential tools to start building work and lay foundations for the classrooms.


    » We aim to raise £20,000 to assist the Diocese with building work.

    What success will look like

    The Diocese is ready to start the building work on the plot of land that they own, they need our help to do it.

  • Impact


    Once the Vocational Training Centre is operational, it will train and equip the young people to use their skills and talents locally and to make a real improvement in their community in western Tanzania.


    We have visited the Diocese and have a good working relationship with Bishop Kasagara and the Holy Apostles Church in the UK. By working together on a long-term basis we will be constantly monitoring the project so it best meets the need of the local communities.


    Every donation will be acknowledged and we will also provide regular reports as the projects progresses.
