• Initiating programs concerning awareness of the environment and environmental conservation

Ensuring environmental sustainability: YTO intervention is in areas of tree planting. We educate, train and inform communities about environmental degradation, and form environmental clubs in schools.

We plant trees to combat environmental degradation and help improve the health of school children and the community. The intention is to sustain and improve environmental stewardship, increase knowledge on tree planting & management among the school, children, their parents and guardians so we can value trees as a community asset. This will also increase knowledge in addressing environmental issues through tree planting exercises and awareness workshops.

The YTO environment project increases environmental awareness among youngsters by equipping them with the knowledge needed to protect mother earth by educating them about environmental conservation, and most importantly, by planting trees during their younger years in order to increase the forested area of Tanzania.


The goal of this project is to engage the youth and all people to provide ecologically clean vegetables and fruits to their communities while raising a reasonable income for themselves during the off season. In order to reach this goal we have created an off season vegetable farm as a way to demonstrate and encourage other youth to get involved in off season vegetable growing.

Due to the lack of opportunities in rural areas, we have encouraged the youth to migrate to urban centers. However, because most countries like Tanzania have not yet initiated their transition to industrialization, urban centers cannot create a substantial number of jobs. Therefore, in the short term, only rural activities like farming can effectively create occupation for most new job seekers.

This projects has resulted in the following:

  • provided support and the district with off seasons vegetables
  • created jobs for youngsters
  • raised income for the youth
  • more youth getting have become involved in off season vegetable growing
  • vegetables in the food baskets of local communities have increased


The aim for the project is to empower young females, women and males with skills in tailoring. It is also meant to boost the economic status for the young females /women and their families, and hence improve their livelihood.

Our target number of beneficiaries for the tailoring project is 20 females, but our starting number is 2 for 3 months, after when these 2 females will teach two others 2, the training continuing until the 20 females have acquire the skill.

During this tailoring course, women learn to compute budgets for clothing and savings from making their own clothes. They learn to design and make a variety of attire. Health and women rights lessons are also taught during class.
