Feed the World

Since Cultural Life Tanzania inception in 2009, Volunteers have addressed the adverse impact of food shortages in the countries they have served. Projects have ranged from fish farming and the introduction of small scale irrigation systems to improved food processing and marketing of food. Volunteers have also helped address food availability and nutrition through a variety of projects, including building school gardens, growing agricultural microenterprises, and educating others about good nutrition.

In response to increased challenges throughout the world regarding food security, Cultural Life Tanzania in April 2008, formed a Worldwide Food Security Task Force, charged with developing a mission statement and strategic plan; consolidating information and resources; and providing Volunteers and staff with project information, training assistance, and emotional support.

In response to increased food security challenges throughout the world, Cultural Life Tanzania is committed doing its part to help address this critical issue at the grassroots level. Drawing on the experience of our staff and Volunteers, Cultural Life Tanzania offers short-term and long-term assistance that reflects Cultural Life Tanzania three goals, complements the work of other agencies and nongovernmental organizations, and highlights the unique role Volunteers can play in education, agricultural development, income generation, and sustainability.

The facility features a solar powered greenhouse for experimentation and demonstration, a compost area, and a large area available for crops.

The organization works with 17 farmers' associations and 10 partner organizations to train local agricultural advisors from each association. At the end of the project, these advisors will be fully prepared to implement sustainable/organic farming trainings and experimentation in their own communities.
