The Livingstone Tanzania Trust seeks to build a world where each person can meet and exceed their basic needs and reach their full potential regardless of their gender, religious beliefs, ethnicity, HIV Status or sexuality. We value the strength, integrity and bravery of the individual and the contributions that they can make to the group.
LTT believes in community driven development. Plans for development must emanate from local communities. Development projects must be collaborative and have the backing of the local leadership. The contritions from all stakeholders must be valued.
Development programmes must consider the needs of the local community today as well as its needs in the future.
We work with young and vulnerable people, either directly or via partner organisations, in the UK and overseas and we acknowledges our duty of care to them under UK law. Consequently we have a Child and Vulnerable People Protection Policy to assist us and guide us as we work.
Buying locally and hiring locally ensures that our projects have a wide economic impact in the local communities. LTT supports individuals and businesses in the community by purchasing materials and supplies locally. Volunteers never replace local tradesmen. Moreover we believe that local skills should be developed and enhanced.
