In Tanzania, women and children are among the poorest of the poor. Almost all women in Tanzania earn their income through agriculture, but they do not have the same access to training and resources as male farmers and, as a result, produce 20-30% less food.
Pangani River Basin
Through sustainable agriculture training, partnering farmers in the Pangani River Basin are doubling their crop production. Participants are also restoring this critical ecosystem by planting thousands of trees per year. At the same time, communities are growing in their care for creation and love for their neighbors through a curriculum titled “Redemptive Agriculture.”
The Pangani River Basin is one of the most strategic environmental locations in the world. Located on the perimeter of the Eastern Arc Mountains (part of the Eastern Afromontane Biodiversity Hotspot), this region is home to countless plant, bird, reptile, and mammal species, many found nowhere else in the world.
Also home to this basin, millions of people who rely on this land for food and income. Plant With Purpose is strategically working in watersheds within this important basin.
