The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated the Tanzania tourism industry, the biggest part of the economy in the region where Terrawatu operates. The trickle-down effect of almost no cash income coming into the communities has hit villagers hard. As it is going to be quite some time before tourism returns in full force, if ever, Terrawatu has decided to launch a new project to train local community members in permaculture that they can use on their own farms and gardens to feed themselves and their families.
Please help us in this effort.
We have started a small fundraising campaign to obtain funds to rent land for use as a demonstration garden and purchase start-up materials. The work will begin immediately. We expect to reach more than 200 women, over 25 orphans, as well as any other villagers who want to learn the techniques.
