Current Projects

Terrawatu is proud to say that when we celebrated our 10-Year anniversary in 2011, the majority of our projects were already self-sustainable and the others were in need of modest amounts of funding to maintain their growth. In our over 20 years of experience, we have learned to stream-line project development to make the biggest impact. In other words, a little goes a long way with Terrawatu. For the last few years, directors of orphanages, schools and community networks have sought out our expertise to guide them in their project development, accelerating improvements in livelihoods across the region.

Our current initiatives build upon our years of experience and our strong relationships with local communities in Tanzania:

  • Food & Medicine/Health Security -- Chakula na Dawa Usalama, Terrawatu's Signature Project launched in its 20th Anniversary Year.

  • Women's Centre -- Currently under construction, the Lynn Bretsynder Women's Centre adjacent to our permaculture demonstration farm in Mkonoo village will house a large workshop area, offices and rooms for volunteers.

  • Huruma Orphanage -- creation of permaculture farm, assisting in upgrading kitchen facilities, cooking classes and support of education and living expenses for orphans.

  • Natema School Project -- construction of classrooms at Natema Primary School including a tech center with latest mobile technology.

  • Consulting -- providing consulting services for organizations and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs working in Tanzania and the sub-Saharan Africa region.
