Tanzania has large areas of farmland but many of its people live in poverty. With the right tools, the country’s large youth population has the potential to increase jobs, grow the economy, and achieve food security.

Heifer International has worked with families in Tanzania since 1974. Our work focuses on increasing local farmers’ standard of living through the dairy and poultry value chains.

We distribute livestock to local farming families, but a large part of our work involves strengthening access to local markets through business planning, marketing, and establishing milk and chicken collection centers.

We have helped set up 26 milk collection centers in Zanzibar and the Southern Highlands, connecting thousands of dairy farmers to formal markets for the first time. We are also investing in a milk processing plant, together with other partners, so farmers can reduce waste and further increase incomes with value-addition products.

Through the hub system, farmers can also access a network of community agro-vet entrepreneurs — people from their local area, who receive training to provide basic veterinary care, at a small cost to the farmer. This increases the support local farmers receive so they can keep their livestock fit and healthy.
