Our goals
School, Water and sanitation
Every year two million people die because of unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene. Children and young people living in rural communities are particularly affected. in Tanzania: Less than half the population have access to safe drinking water and as little as 16% have access to adequate sanitation facilities. Awareness of the importance of even simple hygiene practices is limited. School children are particularly exposed to the effects of unsafe water, hygiene and sanitation, with 84% of schools lacking functional hand washing facilities and only 1% providing their pupils with soap. FEid Tanzania focuses on working in rural, harder to reach communities where the level of need is more pronounced. Our programmes reflect the fact that women, girls and young people are dis proportionally affected, as they carry out most of the unpaid labour associated with WASH in households and communities. This has a huge impact on their health, education and ability to earn money. A key focus of our work will be with schools and their communities.

Natural Resource Management
in Tanzania: More than three quarters of Tanzania’s population rely on crop growth and seasonal rainfall to survive. Agriculture accounts for a quarter of the Tanzanian economy, and it is these farmer who suffer the real, dangerous consequences of environmental degradation. Adverse impacts of climate change are already affecting livelihoods and the economy. Recent severe droughts dramatically highlighted the food insecurity, water scarcity and power supply issues that the country faces. FEid Tanzania focus on raising awareness of the importance of protecting the environment, working with communities to find ways to develop in a sustainable way.

Social Impact

VoSTa work to create an good  environment through our well established projects which values and supports youth participation regardless of background or gender: where poverty and education levels won’t hold young people back; where culture and traditions are celebrated but not limiting. As Non-government organization we work to facilitate these goals be attained through the power of volunteerism. Young people in Tanzania want their voices to be heard. They aspire to be involved in decision making processes and to contribute to the socioeconomic development of their country. They have the commitment, creativity, and passion to make real change. But they often lack the skills, knowledge and opportunities this requires. These issues are particularly difficult for young women and rural youth to overcome.
