The Mnyambe dispensary serves six villages in the area. The government had started work on a new outpatients department, which was left totally incomplete. The dispensary applied for funds to complete the project. African Palms provided £13,000.00 to complete the project.
We visited the project in July 2016 and found it very near completion.

Dr Lawi Issa had asked for funds to build a new operating theatre at Lulindi Health Centre. He was carrying out operations using a kitchen table in a room that had a curtain for a door.
The project was completed in late 2016.

African Palms provided £5769.00 to help plant 12,000 trees and plants in an area where ‘slash and burn’ agriculture had been the practice. Slash and burn basically means felling the trees on one plot of land, using it, then abandoning it, and then moving on to the next plot, not the best practice environmentally.

The project was visited autumn 2017 and the trees were flourishing.

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.
