Namikunda is one of the villages where the Palm Crosses are made. Discussions with the village elders and the diocese of Masasi came to the conclusion that instead of a water project the village would benefit more from investment in its school.

In the three years 2017, 2018 and 2019 £13,000 has been provided to help construct a number of new classrooms for the Namikunda primary school.

The trust invested £5,100 in this project to help children who have basically been left out of the schooling system. This involved buying 200 students what that they would require in order to attend school, including exercise books, bags, uniforms, shoes, pens and pencils.

In 2019 the trust provided £3100 to a project implemented by the Anglican Church of Tanzania.

The area concerned was/is facing lower and lower crop yields, also there has become a lack of wood for fuel.

The aim was to train farmers to use better systems to increase crop yields and also to implement a program of tree planting,  starting with 12,000 trees including orange, mango, pawpaw, passion and a majority of Mikaratus and Miaborea.

African Palms

The aim of African Palms is to give people living in a very poor part of Tanzania the possibility of earning some extra money. The people’s daily work is the planting of maize, millet and some ground nuts to feed themselves and their families.
