Mission and objectives

Tanzania Development Trust has been working with grassroots organisations in the poorest areas of Tanzania for 40 years. We are all volunteers and so every pound donated goes directly to projects. TDT was founded as a Charitable Trust in 1975 by the Britain Tanzania Society (BTS). BTS remains our parent body and pays the small administrative costs of TDT. That’s why we can promise that every pound donated is spent on projects. The people who run TDT and BTS are all volunteers who know the country well. No salaries are paid. We have no offices. When we visit projects we all pay our own expenses. Project requests come from Tanzania via our website, from visits, by word of mouth, through the BTS branch in Dar es Salaam or from NGOs in the UK. Applications are carefully checked. We ask for full estimates from contractors. We get clear evidence of community participation and approval from local Government officials. The system is designed to be as transparent as possible. In over 30 years we have had almost no loss by fraud or theft. We have built a safe house for girls refusing FGM and supported over 100 projects including bore holes for villages without water, school resources and solar panels for dispensaries
