Focus on Tanzanian Communities partners with multiple communities in northern Tanzania. We have a liaison in Tanzania who helps us by working with the members of the community and the local leadership to identify projects they would like to support and see completed. The scope of these projects can be broad; our only requirements are that they address the challenges laid out in the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, that they are sustainable, and that they have the support of the community.
