CARE International in Tanzania

CARE International is an International Non-Governmental Organization (INGO) registered and commenced its works in Tanzania in 1994 responding to the influx of refugees in North-West Tanzania because of the genocide crisis in Rwanda. Since then and over 29 years now, CARE International in Tanzania has expanded and developed innovative projects in agriculture, education, health, economic empowerment, and environmental projects across the country. These projects are specifically designed to address the needs of poor and vulnerable people, focusing more on women and girls to create a world where everyone has equal opportunities to thrive and achieve their potential.

To fulfill its commitment to saving lives, defeating poverty, and achieving social justice, CARE International in Tanzania implements projects leveraging Village Saving and Loan Associations (VSLAs), integrating Gender & Gender Based Violence, best agriculture practices (Farmers’ Field Business School) to improve the ecosystem, strengthen livelihoods and increase income while conserving the environment.

CARE International in Tanzania has been creating local  solutions to poverty and inequality and seeks dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis.
