Tanzania is home to Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, as well as game parks like the Serengeti.

The rural population of Tanzania depend on small-scale farming for their livelihoods, but over half of households do not have enough nutritious food to eat. Meanwhile, Tanzania’s large forests are facing deforestation and soil erosion as a result of people resorting to selling timber products like firewood and charcoal to make money.

To reduce overall poverty in Tanzania, sustainable agricultural growth is vital.

Farm Africa has, since 1990, been helping Tanzania's smallholders, pastoralists and forest communities become self-sufficient.
