Programme
The majority of the people in Tanzania rely on wood, crop residues and animal dung for their household fuel needs. The household budget survey conducted in 2000/01 indicates that firewood and charcoal are the most important cooking fuels used by 78% and 14% of households in Tanzania. With worsening economic situation, charcoal burning is becoming an important economic activity among the chronically food insecure farming communities. This is causing severe deforestation and environmental degradation leading to biodiversity loss and increased susceptibility of land to wind and water erosion.
Heifer’s intervention in this program aims at ensuring sustainable food and income security for the resource limited communities in the ten districts through provision of livestock including dairy cattle, pigs, and local chicken and related services. A total of 1850 families belonging to 35 farmer’s groups will benefit from placement of livestock and related training. The following tables summarize the number of groups, membership size, types and number of livestock and number of original and pass on families benefiting from the project.
