Where we work
The Tabora Region covers a large area and has a population of around 2,291,000. Approximately 10% of people in Tanzania are disabled and around 3% have difficulties getting around. It is a rural area and poverty levels are high with subsistence agriculture forming the mainstay of most people’s livelihoods.
Although Tabora is a significant size, the transport infrastructure is limited meaning travel can be difficult, particularly for disabled people. Health care services are also limited with no dedicated services for people with physical disabilities. We work alongside existing health care providers including the government and other local organisations and believe that in partnership we can achieve much more.
