Plan has been working in Tanzania since 1991, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education, sanitation, livelihoods and protection.
We operate in 6 areas across Tanzania and work with 30,000 sponsored children, their families and their communities.
Currently, we are focusing on community-led total sanitation (CLTS), which inspires communities to stop open-air defecation because of its negative impact on health. So far we have introduced CLTS in over 60 villages and many of them have declared themselves ‘open defecation free’.
Unlocking women's potential through village credit associations
Microfinance is enabling rural women in villages across Tanzania to change their futures, unlocking their potential to venture into new ways of creating sustainable livelihoods.
