Maisha Bora Local Partners: HEIFER International Tanzania

  • Maisha Bora Local Partners: HEIFER International Tanzania

Heifer International Tanzania (HITZ) is a registered NGO in Tanzania affiliated with Heifer Project International in the United States of America (USA). Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the earth.

HITZ implements programs and projects using a sustainable livelihoods approach in supporting diverse, socially acceptable and economically viable, integrated, livestock farming enterprises portfolios that enable resource-poor farm families to build resilience and sustainable livelihoods to overcome abject poverty.

Passing on the gift
is fundamental to Heifer International’s approach to sustainable development. As people share the offspring of their animals and other resources with successive households, they replicate their own knowledge, resources and skills by creating and replicating a continuously expanding network of hope, dignity, and self-reliance around the world.

HITz started working in Tanzania in 1974 and was officially registered as an INGO in 1981. HITz has been working in all 30 regions of Tanzania. Currently there are 7 on-going projects. Heifer International Tanzania works together with VSF-Belgium on the livestock component of the Maisha Bora programme and is responsible for the execution of Result field 2: “Improve productivity and quality of animals”.
