GN Tanzania


Tanzania is economically and politically peaceful country in East Africa, southern part of Sahara desert. The population is approximately 43.5 million, most them living under 1 USD per day.

Good Neighbors Tanzania has been working in 5 Community Development Projects last year in 2 regions; Dar es Salaam and Morogoro, and we are waiting for an approval for a new CDP in Tanga region. We are doing our best to transform the world into a peaceful and secure place where no one suffers from starvation, no one gets sick from preventable diseases, and everyone is comforted and respected without any alienation for any reasons as GNI recommended.




Good Neighbors Tanzania has established 2 more projects in 2010, increasing the number of children supported to 3,163. We have been supporting in various dimensions such as education, balanced nutrition, water and sanitation, day care center, vocational training center, income generations programs and advocacy to all communities. Madale CDP has Rafiki Day Care Center which gives pre-school children an opportunity to learn at elementary level. Also Madale CDP is operating Tegeta Vocational Training Center to provide vocational education for students who have not been able to enter secondary school. Due to our efforts, the rate of entrance to Rafiki Day Care Center has increased by 20%. There are still many children who would like to join the Rafiki Day Care Center, therefore we hope to expand classrooms and employ more teachers. GNTZ is not only giving educational support to Madale but to other CDPs as well. In Alimaua CDP the graduate rate has increased by 4% and in Msimbazi CDP by 9% compared to 2009. These remarkable increases have brought a hope to the staff and local community leaders. Moreover, Pangawe CDP helped to vitalize in local community’s economic through income generation program. In every CDP, GNTZ conducted nutrition program to prevent children from malnutrition by supporting well-nourished food monthly or quarterly.



Mambo?(Hi!) Hakuna matata(everything is ok here), Good Neighbors Tanzania appreciates sponsors’ and all staff’s willingness to support with their hearts which have already given the hope to children and to local communities. Almost everyone in our CDPs is not able to afford one meal per day. However with Good Neighbors, their situations are improving. These are all because of the numerous support from our sponsors. We would like to give our special thanks. We have planned to establish two new Community Development Projects in Kigamboni Buyuni(Dar es Salaam) and in rural area called Ntene (Lindi region, southern part of Tanzania). We expect to start these two CDPs from August 2011 to help people to fight against poverty. Asante Sana. (Thank you very much)
