What we do


Tanzania is one of Africa’s fastest growing economies, with annual GDP growth running at close to 7% since 2000. However, widespread poverty persists. Almost half of Tanzania’s population lives on less than $1.90 per day. High population growth and low productivity in labour-intensive sectors like agriculture, which employs 75% of the population, limit broad-based economic growth. In addition, the effects of global heating are deepening agriculture’s vulnerability to disasters.
Tanzanian women and girls remain among the most marginalized citizens in sub-Saharan Africa. In July 2019, the legal age of marriage for girls was changed from 14 to 18 - the same age as for boys and in line with international human rights recommendations.
