The Government has put in place a number of policies and strategies on poverty reduction. These include the National Strategy for Growth and Poverty Reduction which was finalized in 2000. The Strategy has enabled the government to make many achievement including increasing the coverage of education and health services, investing in infrastructure and supporting agricultural development.

However, one-third of the population of Tanzania lives below the basic needs poverty line. People living in poverty struggle to provide their families with the things they need. They can’t invest in improved seeds or fertilizer and therefore increase the amount of food their families have to eat, and there is very little access to local employment opportunities which might help them to earn enough money to purchase food, buy other necessities and find it difficult to afford basic health care and haven’t adopted a routine of taking children regularly to clinics.
