Tanzania sunflower

At more than ten times the size of Ireland and with an estimated population of 47m, Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa. The Tanzanian economy has grown considerably during the last ten years and poverty rates have declined but the pace and depth of poverty reduction means that not everyone has benefited.

Irish Aid is working closely with the Tanzanian government and a range of non-governmental organisations to ensure that rural poor households, in particular women and children, earn enough to sustain and feed their families, are better nourished and live longer healthier lives.
