We help unlock the potential within the community - so they can address the problems they face.

Tanzania is an incredible country that is home to many incredible people. However, too many of the country's communities still face poverty - particularly those in rural areas.

Traditional models of development are not doing enough to decrease poverty in Tanzania, often leaving problems behind for local communities to overcome alone.

We want to change that.

The Livingstone Tanzania Trust works together with communities, providing the tools and knowledge they need to lead themselves out of poverty.

We will only instigate change that is readily wanted by the communities we work with, and we will stay until we are no longer needed.

We are immensely proud that our innovative approach is achieving exciting, tangible and positive impacts in the Manyara Region.

With our programmes that focus on education and enterprise, communities are beginning to own their development, building the skills and knowledge they need for truly sustainable and self-sufficient change.


Our Programmes



All children have an equal right to a quality education in a safe, inspirational environment.

Schools must have sufficient teaching and learning materials to give every child the best opportunity to learn. The community must ensure students are fed daily so that they are fit, healthy and able to learn.

Enterprise creates jobs and brings prosperity, making it a fundamental driver for economic and social development.

In the Manyara Region, most people are farmers who rely on the land, the environment and the climate for their livelihoods. Therefore, by focusing on agriculture, we can help whole communities make their way out of poverty.

Women and Girls

Women are the backbone of all social and economic activity in the community, whether in businesses, on farms, as entrepreneurs or employees, or by doing unpaid care work at home.

We believe in the power of gender equality, which is why we are working with women, girls, and whole communities to try to achieve this.
