A dozen individuals, working with Oxfam, raise money to support livelihoods initiatives in the Shinyanga and Simiyu regions of Tanzania.
Previous projects have included encouraging the cultivation of rice and raising chickens. Our current project is promoting sisal. We are now fund-raising to support the last year of the initial sisal project.
Running for the past 3 years, this has produced a significant expansion in the cultivation of sisal, as well as improved processing to provide a valuable cash crop.
We have now committed to support the final phase of the sisal project, 2015/6 and 2016/7
