At the foot of Mount Meru, in the north of Tanzania, there is a rural area on a vast plateau where deforestation, unsustainable agricultural practices and bad management of natural resources are causing rapid environmental degradation and, consequently, increasing poverty.

Oikos, in collaboration with its main local partner, Oikos East Africa, wants to meet the needs of women and children, the most disadvantaged and vulnerable figures in the communities in the eight villages in the provinces of Ngarenanyuki and Oldonyo Sambu.

Nutrition and education

We are working on several integrated levels: an improvement in diet in schools and families; new opportunities for schooling; education and training for young students and women; awareness-raising campaigns on the principles of a correct diet, targeting the entire community.

The project aims at increasing awareness about the importance of a good diet and a more appropriate use of natural resources by everyone in order to reduce the percentage of malnourished or undernourished babies and children in the area of intervention while increasing the quality of and access to education in thirteen schools (with a special focus on the three in which Intervita has launched a Distance Support programme).
